Legal & General Cycle to MIPIM 2017 – Meet the JLL team

​A plucky team of JLL employees will be taking part in the annual Cycle to MIPIM.

The ride, sponsored by Legal & General Real Assets, begins on the 9th March and will see over 150 professionals from the property industry riding in relay format, completing at least two of the five or six stages every day ranging from 40 – 60 kilometres each.

The event is being run by fundraising charity Club Peleton​ and will raise money for children's charity Coram. You can support the JLL team by donating to their JustGiving page here.

Meet the team: 

Alistair Meadows, Head of capital markets

Alistair recently returned to the UK from Singapore to lead JLL's UK Capital Markets business based in London and the tropics of Singapore are now a very distant memory for  him. A cycling novice hoping a sporting, mostly rugby, history of 90% perspiration, 10% inspiration will stand me in good stead over the 6 days!  Part of a younger, fitter, faster JLL Team.

Gemma Kendall, Director, EMEA Capital Markets team


Gemma has been with JLL for 10 years. Her role involves travel throughout Europe, which can be a little bit tricky for cycling training. she only got into cycling when training for a half-ironman last year but now really enjoys heading into the countryside over the weekend and getting out of London. She tends to always have a challenge in the diary so when the opportunity came up to cycle to MIPIM, she couldn't refuse – especially for such a good cause.

Ben Rose, Graduate Surveyor, Valuation Advisory




Born and raised in London, Ben's work and study has involved stints living in Paris and then Buenos Aires. He joined JLL in 2015 and has enjoyed time in the National Investment, European Capital Markets and Valuation teams. His first endurance cycle was in July 2016 when he rode in a "London to Paris sub 24hrs" charity cycle. Ben is a passionate sportsman who will happily talk rugby and football till the cows come home!

Jonathan Heptonstall, Director, Retail Investment


 Jonathan has been with JLL for 10 years, following the merger with Churston Heard.  Jonathan Heads up the High Street Retail team, specialising in intown retail investment. Jonathan enjoys getting back to the family farm over the weekends, where lambing has just started!  In his spare time, but not as much as he should do, cycling round the Surrey Hills, getting ready for the mountains in Southern France!
