JLL Names David Tennery Managing Director of Capital Markets for Southeast

Long-tenured industry executive to also serve as managing director for office investor services

ATLANTA, May 13, 2015 – JLL has appointed David Tennery as Managing Director of Capital Markets for the Southeast. He will also continue to serve as Managing Director of Office Investor Services, a title he has held since joining JLL in 2013.

In his new role, Tennery will oversee office investment sales with a focus on Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas. Tennery also will be leaving his role as Managing Director of Agency Leasing.

Tennery has worked in the commercial real estate business since 1981 and has developed and sold more than 8 million square feet of office, retail, industrial, mixed-use and hotel properties in the United States and Latin America.

“David brings with him a depth of experience that he has built during a career spanning more than two decades in the commercial real estate business,” said Mike Sivewright, JLL’s Market Director for the Atlanta region. “With David at the helm, we’re in a position to reinforce and strengthen JLL’s capital markets business throughout the Southeast.”

Among Tennery’s many accomplishments is the recent sale of the high profile 1.04 million-square-foot Lenox Park project in Atlanta on behalf of Columbia Property Trust. During his tenure at JLL, Tennery and the team he will lead have sold more than 5 million square feet of office assets throughout the Southeastern U.S. in transactions totaling more than $1.2 billion.

JLL’s agency leasing practice led the city in 2014 and is on pace to repeat in 2015. JLL expects to name a new director of agency leasing shortly, and Sivewright will oversee the company’s agency leasing business until a full-time replacement is named.
