JLL – Phoenix Named a 2015 Arizona’s Most Admired Company

PHOENIX, September 11, 2015 – The Phoenix office of JLL has been named one of 40 winners of the 2015 Arizona’s Most Admired Companies Awards (MAC). JLL received its award along with other top Arizona businesses, ranging from real estate and banking to software and medical providers.

Arizona’s Most Admired Companies are selected based on workplace culture, leadership excellence, corporate and social responsibility, customer opinion and innovation.

“This is the most comprehensive and most prestigious corporate awards program in Arizona. It recognizes the contributions and impact these ‘most admired companies’ bring to the state,” said Denise Gredler, Founder and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ and cofounder of the MAC program.

“JLL has a strong tradition of setting and achieving a very high bar,” said Dennis Desmond, Senior Managing Director and head of the Phoenix JLL office. “I’m very proud to work alongside this team. They are leaders in business and the community, and they bring that commitment to work every day to make our contribution as a company the best that it can be.”

The Phoenix office of JLL was formed in 2008, when JLL (formerly Jones Lang LaSalle) purchased The Staubach Company, a national brokerage firm specializing in tenant representation. In the years since, JLL-Phoenix has combined its global platform with local industry experts to build a full-service vision. It continues to grow that vision in Phoenix with help from 40 licensed brokers and more than 500 of the Valley’s most recognized industry experts.
