NEW YORK CITY—JLL has tapped Gavin Morgan, vice chairman, to serve as head of the firm’s capital markets group in New York. He is tasked with overseeing JLL’s investment sales and debt businesses, and developing and implementing a clear vision and growth strategy for the group throughout the city.

Prior to joining JLL in New York, Morgan served as COO for Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau. He developed and led the largest, most experienced landlord advisory and leasing team in these markets, while managing JLL’s overall operations and business growth.

Morgan has nearly 25 years of experience in business growth, management and commercial real estate, focusing on capital transactions, agency leasing and tenant representation transactions, and investment management for a wide variety of clients. He has extensive experience providing strategic advice to investors and implementing transactions across a broad range of commercial projects including specialty retail, entertainment venues, campus office parks and some of the world’s largest tower office buildings.

“Gavin Morgan was a terrific choice to take our high-performance capital markets group to the next level,” says Stephen Schlegel, JLL’s market director for the New York tri-state region. “With a successful career in Europe and Asia Pacific focused on landlord advisory work, he also has deep experience with many major tenants, affording him unique insights and an edge when advising on investment opportunities.

Internally, Schegel continues, “Morgan will use his expertise and relationships to connect Capital Markets Group professionals across all service lines, integrate talent, and provide overall leadership and oversight within New York.”
