CHICAGO-Avison Young has hired commercial real estate veteran Jonathan Malm as principal of its recently opened Chicago office. Coming from five years of work as president of Chicago-based ICE Realty Group Inc., Malm will support Avison’s brokerage services, focusing on industrial property leasing and sales for corporate tenants, owners and developers.

“With his extensive and diverse real estate development, investment and marketing experience, Jonathan will provide an additional dimension of knowledge and talent to our brokerage team and, most importantly, to our clients,” Michael McKiernan, principal and managing director of Avison Young-Chicago, says. “His leadership skills and solid track record fit in well with Avison Young’s commitment to focusing on clients’ objectives, and will help augment Avison Young’s presence on the local and national scene.”

In his role at ICE, Malm worked in industrial and office leasing brokerage, development and investment services. He brings two decades of commercial real estate experience, having worked with other companies including Opus, The Alter Group, McShane and ORIX, in areas including marketing/brokerage, speculative and build-to-suit development, redevelopment of existing properties, and portfolio real estate projects. Malm’s combined real estate activities to date have created more than $1.3 billion in value for his clients.

“The company’s client-centric approach is what differentiates the company from the competition and that is something I look forward to being a part of,” Malm says. “Avison Young’s business model, which enhances the integrated services platform, is highly sought after by corporations to intelligently determine the most efficient and cost effective real estate solutions to compete in today’s marketplace. Moreover, being part of a principal-managed company adds value to each client relationship as this type of ownership structure ensures complete integrity and a commitment to long term relationships.”
