CHICAGO-Jones Lang LaSalle has continued its focus on growing its Midwest industrial team with five new hires in the region. The company hired as EVPs Dominic Carbonari and Frank Griffin, who previously worked in a two-person team at Grubb & Ellis. The company recruited Annie Koch, also from Grubb & Ellis where she worked with Carbonari and Griffin as marketing coordinator, and Aaron Rosdal, who came from ProLogis as a leasing representative, both as associates. Finally, Robb Russell will join the firm to lead its Midwest industrial research as senior analyst.

“The industrial sector is an area of growth and an important strategic priority for us,” Dan Ryan, Midwest marketing director of JLL, tells GlobeSt.com. “We’ve been on a path over the last year or so to implement and grow our platform nationally, and specifically in Chicago. We were very fortunate through the recent merger with the Staubach company in July to pick up a very strong industrial team and supply chain in the Midwest.”

The merger with Staubach last summer brought JLL a dozen employees focused specifically on industrial tenant rep and supply chain consulting.

“The additions now give us a rounded ability to not only do tenant rep, but also landlord rep as well as investment sales work in the Chicago area,” Ryan says. The most recent hires bring the company’s Midwest industrial team to a staff of 17.

Ryan says the company will continue to make hires of other talent on the market and grow its local industrial sector further as opportunities present themselves. “In this environment, the industrial area is not going to be immune to the current economic environment, however, because this is a building up for us of a focused industrial practice in Chicago, it’s a space where we will be able to add a very successful group of people,” Ryan says.

“Chicago has a billion square feet of industrial space and it’s a market for us that was under-served and a place where our clients are driving us to be where we haven’t been in the recent past,” he says. “Adding this team at this point in time, we’re not at all concerned about our ability to create value for our clients and grow in this area.”
