To our Stakeholders

 

Colin Dyer
Chief Executive Officer
and President

2015 marked another outstanding year of record revenue and profit at JLL. While real estate market conditions remained favorable in most parts of the world, success is never the product of healthy markets alone. We thank two groups for such a good year: our clients, who trusted us to represent them in all parts of the world, and our own staff, who earned that trust by delivering superior client service, advice and results.

Featured Project:

Costanera Center

JLL Chile provided agency leasing services for Costanera Center, the largest mixed-use project in Santiago. Designed by world-renowned architect César Pelli and developed by Cencosud Chile, Costanera Center reflects the dynamism and stability of Chile, one of the most competitive and fastest growing countries in South America. Located in the heart of Santiago’s financial district, the Costanera Center Tower 2 is the tallest skyscraper in Latin America. Local JLL teams established strong relationships with the landlord’s team, executing commercial strategies to accomplish all project objectives for over 90,000 square meters of office space.

We know technology

At JLL we are committed to developing and continually enhancing the best data, information-management and technology platform in the commercial real estate industry. In a section of this year’s Annual Report called ‘The Technology Imperative,’ we talk about why this is so important for our clients and for JLL, and we offer examples of a few of the innovative products and services we have recently introduced.

Our technology is helping global corporations manage their real estate portfolios efficiently, effectively and economically. It provides LaSalle professionals with tools to optimize their investment portfolios. It guides client engagements to design and build out state-of-the-art ‘smart’ workplaces that improve employee satisfaction, productivity and performance. Across our business, we rely on innovative technology to serve our clients, support our people and connect our firm.

We practice what we preach by incorporating new technology and best practices in the office space we occupy around the world. Recently, for example — and shown at the right — we relied on innovation and best practices developed for clients to guide the renovation of JLL offices at 30 Warwick Street in London and the Aon Center in Chicago.
