Current Responsibilities

As a Managing Director at JLL in Seattle, Conan Lee provides real estate advisory and tenant representation brokerage services to data center and office clients throughout the Pacific Northwest and North America. His unique telecommunications background puts him in the ideal position to assist clients with complex, technology/latency driven requirements. 

Conan specializes in all data center related practice lines, and assists office users with complex lease negotiations that often involve a technical component. He runs the data center practice group for JLL in the Northwest and Western Canada markets, and has the largest market share of all brokers specializing in data centers in the Northwest. Conan's efforts and involvement in the local data center community have helped shape this quickly growing market over the past decade. He is consistently one of the top ranked JLL agents in the Northwest. 

Additionally, Conan serves as a Principal at NHTI, a family-run design & build corporation that specializes in telecommunications products, for example the development of submarine cable landing stations. This gives him an unparalleled knowledge of the details and importance of aligning telecom with data centers. Prior to joining JLL 10 years ago, Conan was a broker at Grubb & Ellis. 

His experience outside of the real estate and telecommunications field includes serving as a Marine Corp Infantry Sergeant.
