BOSTON, Aug. 17, 2021 – JLL today announced Chris Maciejczak is joining the firm’s Life Sciences Project & Development Services group as a Managing Director.

Working closely with owners and tenants, he will share strategic guidance on industry trends and forward-looking facility needs, provide technical support in project development, and assure that end products successfully meet client business goals.

“Life sciences companies have an insatiable need for real estate, from ancillary office space to research facilities and manufacturing sites,” said Travis McCready, Executive Managing Director and National Practice Leader, JLL Life Sciences. “From specialized space to distinct air, water and power requirements, each company has a specific set of needs unique to them. Chris’s immense expertise in this space will be critical to clients navigating their projects with speed to market in mind.” 

“I am thrilled to join the JLL Life Sciences Project & Development group; this is a team that is deeply invested in offering its technical expertise in facilities design and management to a rapidly evolving life sciences industry. I am confident that my background working directly in life sciences and my passion for advancing the pace of discovery will accelerate the ongoing work at JLL,” said Maciejczak. “This move will allow me to scale my expertise in the field, helping more clients during this crucial time for life sciences.”
