(Above) JLL’s regional Market Leader and Managing Director spoke at the annual meeting in Pittsburgh.

Last week, Pittsburgh, affectionately known as “the Burgh,” was the host city for our annual regional meeting. Here, we celebrated last years’ accomplishments and discussed 2015 goals. It’s the one time of the year that we take a few hours away from email and phones and learn about tools, techniques, industry research and trends delivered by JLL subject matter experts from around the country.

We also take this opportunity to learn from each other. Considering our region covers seven cities across three states, in-person meetings are instrumental in knowledge-sharing and camaraderie, both of which encompass JLL’s culture.  We are collaborators first and foremost with a laser focus on our clients.

But this isn’t just a nice statement to put on a website or piece of collateral. It’s truly how our organization, from business unit to business unit, region to region, continent to continent, consistently develops tailored solutions that meet some of the most complex client challenges. And each year, we celebrate those individuals who excelled in achievement and client satisfaction.

We’d like to take a moment now to offer well-deserved congratulations to our 2014 top brokers in the region.
