LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24, 2015 - With the firm's continued growth, JLL today announced that it has named 25 year veteran Tony Morales as brokerage lead in the Los Angeles region.  In this expanded role, Morales will set the strategic direction for the Brokerage business and oversee a team of approximately 80 brokers across six offices.  As a player-coach role, he will also drive recruiting efforts and direct pursuit strategies for new business opportunities.
