Leeds, 3 October 2017 – Property consultancy JLL has boosted its property and asset management team in Leeds and Yorkshire and the North East with the announcement of a new lead director and recruitment of two surveyors.

The team has also been boosted by two new staff appointments.

It is a very exciting time to be taking on this role and to be working with such an experienced and dedicated team of professionals.”

The team manages commercial property assets on behalf of pension funds and investment and property companies and is currently responsible for over nearly 200 properties and 1,300 tenants across Yorkshire and the North East.
