JLL Columbus Promotes Top Performer to Meet Marketplace Demand

Commercial real estate expert Dan Wendorf appointed Managing Director

COLUMBUS, Jan. 19, 2016 – Today JLL announced Dan Wendorf's promotion to Managing Director in Columbus, effective immediately. Following a “record-setting year” for Ohio’s capital city, JLL analyzed and refreshed its Columbus leadership team to meet the needs of a vibrant, thriving market.

Throughout 2015, the Columbus market experienced sinking vacancy and mounting tenant demand—all alongside exceptional growth in JLL’s Property Management, Project and Development Services, and the Investment Sales group. As one of the firm’s top regional producers, Wendorf is prepared to lead the office and continue momentum in 2016.

“I’m honored to lead such an extraordinary group of people,” said Wendorf. “Our focus will continue to be to service our clients in a world class manner and to bring solutions to the table that benefit their business and bottom line.”

Wendorf formerly served as Executive Vice President at JLL, where he specialized in tenant representation, agency leasing, and real estate advisory for industrial tenants and investors. He also stays active in the community as a Foundation Board Member for Netcare Access. Wendorf regularly contributes to industry trade publications and received the JLL Top Gun award last year.

“Congratulations to Dan on his new leadership position,” said JC Pelusi, Managing Director for the Great Lakes Region. “We saw a number of significant construction projects kick off locally in 2015, and I look forward to seeing what’s possible in 2016.”
