PARSIPPANY, NJ-Three former Trammell Crow Co. execs have jumped over to Jones Lang LaSalle in the wake of TCC’s merger with CB Richard Ellis. For one, Linda Aronson, it’s a return to JLL, which has its main New Jersey office here. She re-joins the firm as director of operations.

“Her return is a significant boost to our executive team,” says Stephen Schlegel, JLL’s COO for the Tri-State Region. In her previous stint with the company, she held the positions of SVP/regional operations manager and SVP/finance director.

For Dennis McConnell and Jodie Matthews, who come aboard with the titles of EVP and VP respectively, it’s their first time around at JLL, which has been expanding its New Jersey presence significantly. Both had been at TCC just a short time, joining the firm just before the merger with CBRE was announced.

And both had spent much of their respective careers with Cushman & Wakefield. McConnell was there for more than 20 years, responsible for leasing and marketing several high-profile properties. Matthews spent a decade at C&W, responsible for a number of landlord and agency assignments.
