JLL’s Corporate Solutions business will have a new leader from this summer as Chicago-based Neil Murray takes over as global CEO and joins the firm’s Global Executive Board.
He succeeds John Forrest who, after 27 years in the role, is returning to Australia having built the Corporate Solutions business into a global real estate services business which provides solutions including leading-edge technology for corporates and public institutions.
"We are grateful for John's impressive contributions over the past 27 years to shape an exciting transformation and position the business as the digital leader in real estate,” said JLL CEO Christian Ulbrich.
Murray has been with the global real estate firm since 2017 and is currently CEO of Corporate Solutions in EMEA. He previously held senior roles at several firms in Europe.

"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," continued Ulbrich. "His ability to drive complex businesses through transformational change will help our clients and our company grow."
