JLL's CEO for corporate solutions in the EMEA region is being promoted to the position of global CEO, corporate solutions.
Neil Murray, who joined JLL in 2017, had previously spent eight years with Sodexo, where he rose to become the firm's CEO for corporate services. Before that, he spent over 10 years with the GSH Group.
Murray, originally from Dublin and currently based in London, will relocate to Chicago to take on the new position. He succeeds John Forrest, who is returning to Australia, with Mark Caskey succeeding Murray in the role of EMEA CEO, Corporate Solutions.
Murray will report to CEO Christian Ulbrich and join the company's Global executive board. The changes come into effect on 1 June.
In a press statement, JLL praised Murray for playing "a key role in shaping and focusing the region's Corporate Solutions business to contribute to JLL's Beyond strategy".
"Neil has overseen double-digit revenue growth for our Corporate Solutions business across all geographies in the EMEA region, reflecting his deep understanding of corporate real estate and how occupiers can benefit from outsourcing to a global provider," said Ulbrich.
"His ability to drive complex businesses through transformational change will help our clients and our company grow."
