New recruit for JLL’s Higher Education team

LONDON, Wednesday 31 May 2017 - David Stephens has joined JLL as an Associate Director in the Higher Education team.

David brings a wealth of experience to the team from his 15 years at the University of London, latterly as the Head of Residential Accommodation and then Deputy Director of Property and Facilities Management. In his new role David will be helping to advise universities on how to target investment to best improve their student experience.

JLL’s Higher Education team – part of the firm’s wider Alternatives team – provides strategic property advice to UK and international universities. It has particular experience in student housing partnerships and works closely with JLL’s Student Housing team to deliver innovative and affordable solutions to universities.

Robert Kingham, Director in JLL’s Higher Education team, commented: “David’s expertise, and commitment to enhancing the student experience, will be a valuable addition to the team. We are delivering more advice to a wider range of higher education institutions, and seeing our clients becoming increasingly commercial when it comes to their property provision. It’s vital that the solutions we bring develop and evolve in response to changing needs.”
