Queensland appointments: Elliot O’Shea joins JLL and Gerry Leyden promoted to head up Near City Leasing Team

​​BRISBANE, 13 June 2014 - JLL has welcomed Elliott O’Shea to the JLL Brisbane Commercial Office team, while Gerry Leyden has been promoted to head up the Near City Leasing team, working alongside Sam Barr. 

Mr. O’Shea joins JLL after four years as a senior negotiator with Raine & Horne working in the commercial office market and specializing in the inner north and western precincts. 

Gerry Leyden will head up the Near City Leasing team; a promotion that sees him return to a market he first cut his teeth on. He moves out of JLL’s CBD team after five years in this dynamic market to take on the role, charged with significantly increasing market share and transaction rates. 

The appointments follow the recent announcement by JLL of an almost doubling of its Valuation and Advisory business in Queensland, led by the appointment of leading industry figures Troy Linnane and Dennis Morgan in the Brisbane office. 
“This is an extremely exciting time for the company in this state, and nationally,” said Geoff McIntyre, JLL Managing Director Queensland. “Constant expansion and recruitment of excellent operators is intrinsic to JLL’s strategic growth blueprint,” he said.
