His first position in the company was in the Property and Asset Management division. Since then, he has worked in the City Agency, South-East Valuation and High Street Retail Investment and Leasing departments.
In these varied roles, Alex has worked with clients and agents on developing new relationships and seizing opportunities every day. "I have become more involved as time has gone by, helping with some exciting sales and acquisitions," Alex says. "The global business connections that JLL has makes it possible to work on some of the most exciting opportunities in the investment market."
Furthermore, it's not just the size of the firm that impresses Alex, but the people.
"JLL has always had the feel of a small family firm, even though it is one of the biggest property consultancies in the world. Everyone is extremely approachable and encouraging, which I believe is the key driver to the firm's success."
