Jones Lang LaSalle Adds to Solutions Development Team with Business Strategy and Workplace Expert

John Hampton joins the firm’s Corporate Solutions practice with a focus on bringing smart growth and productivity strategies to occupiers

CHICAGO, Dec. 14, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle today announced that tenured sales, workplace and business strategy expert John Hampton has joined the firm as Senior Vice President on the Solutions Development team in the firm’s Corporate Solutions business.  In his new role, Hampton will focus on enhancing Jones Lang LaSalle’s sophisticated suite of strategic solutions for the firm’s global occupier client base.

Hampton will be based out of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Dallas office, reporting to Kenneth Rudy, International Director and head of the U.S. Strategic Consulting Group. He will identify and pursue opportunities with leading-edge corporate occupiers by developing productivity-boosting portfolio solutions that are closely aligned with those companies’ business strategies. 

“Within the last three years, John has helped companies save more than $300 million in real estate costs through enhanced portfolio management and workplace solutions,” said Rudy. “This acumen for improving enterprise value perfectly integrates with Jones Lang LaSalle’s innovative approach of leveraging real estate to improve the productivity of a company’s assets, workplace and people.”

With nearly 30 years of experience in developing strategies that enhance business performance through strategic workplace and technology planning, Hampton’s career includes prominent executive positions at top firms including IBM Corporation, Teng & Associates, Compaq Computer Corporation, and Dell Corporation. 

Hampton joins Jones Lang LaSalle from The Regus Group where he served as Vice President of Enterprise Solutions & Corporate Accounts. In this role, Hampton developed and led the execution of revolutionary office and mobile workplace solutions, advising key global clients on implementation best practices. As Regus’ corporate spokesman for alternative workplace strategies, Hampton was a frequent presenter at high-profile trade events for organizations such as CoreNet Global and WorkTech.

“In the current market climate of ambiguity and complexity, real estate cost-cutting strategies are simply not enough to support a corporation’s overall business goals,” said Hampton. “Jones Lang LaSalle’s philosophy that a company’s real estate assets can actually be a powerful, dynamic lever that contributes to enterprise value through enhanced asset and workforce productivity is something I believe deeply in and am excited to support.”

Hampton holds a Bachelor degree in Architecture and Environmental Design from Kent State University. He is an active member of the American Institute of Architects and CoreNet Global Workplace Community.
