Industry Titan Joins JLL’s Columbus Office

JLL adds top producer Brian Marsh in the midst of Columbus’ industrial upswing

COLUMBUS, July 14, 2016 – JLL is pleased to announce the addition of Brian Marsh to its Columbus office as Executive Vice President, Industrial Markets, effective August 1. Marsh brings experience from global real estate firm Prologis, where he held the position of Senior Vice President.

Marsh is recognized consistently as a top producer in the field. Over the course of his career, he has leased more than 70 million square feet of industrial space globally, developed more than 10 million square feet, and completed acquisitions and dispositions totalling more than $300 million with properties in Ohio, and across the greater Midwest.

"The Columbus industrial market is on such a power upswing that it's become essential to have top talent," said Dan Wendorf, Managing Director of JLL's Columbus office. "Brian's unique skill set, paired with more than 28 years experience in industrial markets, will complement our team of experts and continue to grow the business."

In the Columbus market, large blocks of Class A bulk space are available. And with 3,711,064 square feet under construction, JLL does not foresee warehouse activity slowing anytime soon.

"I'm thrilled to join JLL's team and focus on industrial market activity here in Columbus," said Marsh. "Access to JLL's market research and global subject matter experts provides a tremendous platform to deliver best-in-class tenant relations, deal structuring, and investor underwriting."

Marsh also previously served as the former President of the Central Ohio Chapter of The National Association of Office and Industrial Properties (NAIOP). He holds a Bachelor of Science in Economics from Ohio State University, as well as real estate broker licenses in Ohio and Kentucky.
