JLL Expands Retail Leasing Expertise in San Diego

Dan Gill joins firm as Vice President

SAN DIEGO, April 26, 2017 – JLL today announced the firm has hired Dan Gill as Vice President to expand its Southern California Retail practice. Based in the firm's San Diego office, Gill will partner with JLL's San Diego Retail Brokerage Lead Craig Killman to represent retailers and landlords in the leasing of retail properties throughout the region.

"San Diego's retail market continues to be driven by new and differentiated restaurants and retailers as well as centers that are community gathering places where people are going to spend time with one another, simply because it's great space, not just a retail center," said Peter Belisle, Southwest Market Director, JLL. "Dan is one of San Diego's premier retail brokers and provides tremendous value for our clients as they look to expand in the market."

Gill joins JLL with more than 25 years of experience in the retail real estate industry. Prior to JLL, he owned The Gill Group where he completed more than 175 transactions. Gill holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

The hiring of Gill is the most recent move by JLL to expand its retail platform. In the past two years, JLL has grown its retail brokerage business across major markets, acquiring HMS, Inc., Wilson Retail Group, Shelter Bay Retail Group, Martin Potts & Associates, Inc., and Big Red Rooster to deepen its talent bench. Last year, the firm also hired Houman Mahboubi, Los Angeles' premier high street retail expert along with Scott Kaplan and Erik Westedt, one of Southern California's premier brokerage teams.

The firm's more than 800 dedicated retail experts in the Americas partner with investors and occupiers around the globe to support and shape investment and site selection strategies.
