Dean Kaufman and Bret Davis have joined Jones Lang LaSalle in Las Vegas. Both will serve as senior vice presidents, specializing in assisting office tenants and landlords.

Kaufman comes to JLL from Colliers International, where he represented office tenants and landlords and handled commercial sales. Davis previously worked at CB Richard Ellis, where he provided landlord and tenant representation services. He has executed more than 3.2 million square feet of new, renewal and expansion leases valued in excess of $450 million.

“Our goals for these new positions are to service existing tenant representation clients for both office and industrial transactions, increase and diversify the revenue for the office, maintain and attract top talent, expand our integrated suite of services including agency leasing, property management and capital markets, and leverage our international platform to further grow the business in Las Vegas,” JLL managing director Jeffrey Ingham told CPE.

Ingham said said that today’s economy makes it difficult, if not impossible, to invest. However, they say they are in a position to continue to invest in growing both their platform and geographic areas.

And, he added, there is also opportunity.

“In the commercial real estate brokerage business, top talent is not likely to move in a strong real estate market,” Ingham told CPE. “The current economy is providing Jones Lang LaSalle the opportunity to grow our brokerage business, which will have a long-term positive impact on our overall business.”
