Brings distinguished track record, operational excellence and strategic vision to new role

Washington, DC, June 19, 2018 JLL announces today the promotion of Christopher Molivadas to Mid-Atlantic Market Director. Molivadas will succeed Michael Ellis in the role, who transitioned to East Markets Lead at the beginning of this year.

Molivadas, an 18-year veteran of JLL will be responsible for overseeing the entire Mid-Atlantic region, which includes Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia.

"Chris embodies our core values of teamwork, ethics and excellence," states Ellis.

I look forward to our partnership within the East Market in this new capacity."

"I am extremely proud and humbled to take on this new leadership role at JLL," notes Molivadas. "I'm looking forward to continuing to serve as a trusted partner for our clients and our employees, and helping them achieve their ambitions."

"Our people are our greatest asset and Chris' passion for his work and his clients creates an atmosphere that will serve us all well for years to come."
