Greg Grainger Joins Jones Lang LaSalle to Lead National Industrial Property Management


DALLAS, June 4, 2009 — Jones Lang LaSalle has hired Greg Grainger to launch the firm’s national industrial property management business nationwide.  He will also lead the local property management business for Dallas Fort Worth (DFW). Grainger will assume the role of Managing Director and will be located in the firm’s Dallas office.
 
Grainger joins from CB Richard Ellis where he headed the property management practice for Dallas Fort Worth.  Previously, he managed the Property Management division for DFW at Trammell Crow Company.
 
“In direct response to our clients’ needs, we have created an industrial property management practice which Greg has the knowledge, experience and proven track record to lead,” said Craig Meyer, head of Industrial for Jones Lang LaSalle.  “As client demand grows, we expect to make further appointments to the team in the months to come.” 
 
Grainger’s appointment follows the announcement that 35-year industrial veteran Terry Darrow joined the firm last month to lead the Dallas/Fort Worth industrial group, which specializes in advising occupiers and investors in industrial real estate. Three industrial brokers also were hired in Dallas to bolster the growing practice.
 
“With more than 20 years of experience Greg is a highly respected, senior player in the property management arena,” said Jones Lang LaSalle’s National Property Management Director, Dan Pufunt.  “He will play a key role in expanding our property management business to industrial properties.”
 
Grainger holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from the University of Texas at Tyler.  He has numerous professional designations including CCIM, CPM and RPA.  He currently serves on the Executive Committee of Building Owners and Managers Institute (BOMI) international and is President of Dallas Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA). He is a member of the Texas BOMA Board of Directors and is a member of the Institute of Real Estate Management and North Texas Commercial Association of Realtors.
 
“The addition of Greg to the DFW team allows us to offer an all encompassing industrial solution to our clients,” said Terry Darrow, Managing Director and head of the Dallas/Fort Worth Industrial Practice. “Our bottom line orientation is enhanced significantly by the addition of industrial property management to our array of services.  This is further evidence of the firm’s commitment to growing our industrial practice both regionally and nationally.”
 
Through offices located in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, Jones Lang LaSalle Logistics and Industrial Services team members focus on assisting both real estate occupiers and investors in all the primary and secondary markets of North America.  The firm’s industrial professionals offer a wide variety of real estate expertise in the disposition and acquisition of industrial properties and portfolios, including manufacturing, assembly, research and development, high tech, food processing, warehousing, distribution and logistics facilities.
