JLL recruits Jonathan O’Regan for central London capital markets team
One of West End’s highest profile agents to join JLL
JLL has recruited senior director Jonathan O’Regan to join its central London capital markets team. He has joined JLL from Savills where he spent 11 years and is regarded as one of the West End’s highest profile agents. During his tenure at Savills, O’Regan led over £2bn of high profile acquisitions and disposals including the disposal of 130-137 New Bond Street, W1, on behalf HDG for over £300m and the acquisition of 311 Oxford Street, W1, on behalf of a private investor for over £200m. JLL operates across both the City and West End markets under one structure and Jonathan will work in a broad central London role reflecting the change in clients’ expectations.
Jonathan O’Regan said: “I am delighted to be joining JLL, but have really enjoyed my time at Savills. I have developed some very successful and deep client relationships during that period and made some great friends along the way. My remit at JLL will be across central London, giving me the ability to transact across the City and West End in a true central London sense and follow clients across the markets. This is a really attractive proposition and I look forward to joining the JLL team at the end of Q1 2021.”
Rob Corbett, head of West End investment at JLL, added: “Jonathan is joining at a really exciting time in our evolution. Whilst we are a successful business and have a market leading position, adding someone of Jonathan’s calibre will help us further grow our business. We are very excited about Jonathan joining next year.”
Julian Sandbach, JLL’s head of central London office markets, added: “Jonathan brings with him a first class advisory record, strong client relationships and an approach which will be highly complementary to our London markets business. His experience in both office and retail assets and proven track record places him in the leading bracket of London investment agents and underlines JLL’s desire to attract the very best people in the market. This is a commitment to the continuing growth plan for our London business and follows the successful recent additions of Thurstan Guthrie-Brown and Fraser Campbell-Wilson.”
