“BSE recognized its growth potential in Phoenix and conducted an extensive multi-market search to find a location that supports this important move in the company’s history,” said Jones Lang LaSalle Executive Vice President Jim Sadler, who brokered the deal with Jones Lang LaSalle Vice Presidents Keith Lammersen and Jason Moore on behalf of BSE Group. “They have done a thorough job of researching and selecting a new home that fulfils a requirement for state-of-the-art engineering space, provides a central location for employees and offers space for expansion.
