Jones Lang LaSalle Expands Corporate Finance & Net Lease Expertise in Atlanta

Shan Gastineau joins firm’s East Coast practice as Managing Director

ATLANTA, Mar. 27, 2012 — Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has expanded its Corporate Finance & Net Lease (CFNL) practice on the East Coast, bringing Shan Gastineau on as a Managing Director in Atlanta.  Gastineau was previously a Senior Vice President with the firm’s Tenant Representation Group.  He will work under the direction of Managing Director Guy Ponticiello to expand the firm’s ability to serve corporate and single-tenant investor clients in the eastern United States.

“Shan brings a wealth of experience to the CFNL team, having represented numerous corporate users and single-tenant investors during his career and we were first-hand witnesses to his finesse working on a recent $63 million sale-leaseback for a major Atlanta-based corporate client,” said Ponticiello.  “His client list reads like a Who’s Who of industry leaders and his expertise runs the gamut from occupier clients to investors to developers.  His leadership will allow us to strategically expand our finance and net lease expertise in Atlanta and the Southeast.”

Added Mike Sivewright, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Atlanta Market Director, “Over the past year, we’ve significantly strengthened our Capital Markets practice here in Atlanta, hiring top performing multifamily and real estate investment banking experts to broaden our already wide ranging platform.  Shan’s move to Capital Markets is a natural fit for him and will do much to broaden our local expertise."

Gastineau joined the Staubach Company in 2002, coming to Jones Lang LaSalle when the firm merged with Staubach in 2008.  Recently, Gastineau completed in excess of $300 million in transaction volume for occupier and investor clients and received the firm’s Top Achiever award for revenue producers from 2004-2011.  Prior to that, he was Vice President for Atlanta based LCI, a facilities management start-up where he was responsible for new market growth.  He also helped expand LCI’s three-city footprint to 24 markets in the U.S. and Canada, while exponentially growing the company revenue over a five year period.  When IKON Office Solutions purchased the company in 1996, he then served as Vice President/General Manager for the facilities management division in the southeast.  Gastineau received his bachelor of arts from Georgia State University where he graduated cum laude.  He currently serves on the Board of the Atlanta Mission, a ministry serving the homeless since 1938, and is actively involved with Leader Impact Group and Priority Associates, organizations helping business leaders move beyond success to significance.

Gastineau will be joined by Senior Associate Katie Madson, who began her career with Jones Lang LaSalle’s Valuation Advisory practice in Madrid, Spain in 2008.  She has been located in the Atlanta office, also with the Tenant Representation Group, since 2009.  Madson holds a Bachelor of Arts with a concentration in English from the University of Georgia and holds an MBA from the ICADE business program at the University Pontificia de Comillas located in Madrid, Spain.
