Jones Lang LaSalle appoints Queensland Managing Director

BRISBANE, 8 SEPTEMBER 2009 – Jones Lang LaSalle Director Geoff McIntyre has been appointed Managing Director in Queensland, Australian CEO Stephen Conry has announced.
Mr McIntyre joined Jones Lang LaSalle in 1993 as a qualified Valuer and is currently the Head of Sales and Investments for Queensland.  He will continue in this role, in addition to taking over responsibility for managing the Queensland business operations.
Mr Conry said Mr McIntyre brings to the role a wealth of experience in the Queensland commercial property market.
“Geoff has played a substantial part in the growth of the Queensland business and his appointment to Managing Director will continue the firm’s growth.
“During his 16 years with Jones Lang LaSalle, Geoff has been involved in some of the biggest sales and investment transactions in Queensland, including Central Plaza One, Two and Three, Post Office Square and Capral Aluminium Industrial Headquarters   He has well established client relationships which will be an important factor in the further growth of the Queensland business,” Mr Conry said.
Mr McIntyre succeeds Mr Conry who was Managing Director since 1997. Mr Conry was appointed head of the Australian business in February this year and undertook both roles prior to his appointment of Mr McIntyre.
Speaking on his appointment, Mr McIntyre said he looked forward to contributing to the future success of the Queensland business operations and maximising opportunities for clients moving into the next phase of the property cycle.
“As the property market goes into the recovery phase, expected in 2010, Jones Lang LaSalle will be ready to maximise opportunities for clients.
“I will continue to promote the merits of Queensland as in investment destination for both our domestic clients and also the more recent interest being shown from offshore investment groups.  New players and capital in Queensland will improve the depth and liquidity of our market, which benefits the whole Queensland property industry.
“In terms of the market going forward I have a simple message in that if you believe in the China/India story then you believe in Queensland business and property.

“Queensland’s vast resources in both coal and more recently coal seam gas, both of which are increasingly in demand from the major Asian economies, will underpin the medium to long term Queensland economy and property markets.
“While there will be some short term uncertainty, I am very confident about the Queensland property markets in the medium to long term,” Mr McIntyre said.
