LOS ANGELES, Nov. 17, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that effective January 1, 2022 it has appointed Senior Managing Directors Jeffrey Bramson and Jeff Sause as co-heads of the Los Angeles Capital Markets group alongside current co-head and Senior Managing Director Bill Fishel.

Bramson, a proven senior leader and office investment sales and advisory professional, will oversee the investment sales and advisory platform for the office while Sause will oversee the debt and equity advisory practice with Fishel. Current co-head Paul Brindley is relocating in early 2022 to JLL’s Singapore office to lead the firm’s debt business in Asia as Head of Debt Advisory – APAC.

“Paul has been a great partner for many years in LA, and we are excited for his next opportunity within the firm,” Fishel said. “As we look ahead, we’ve decided to double down here in Los Angeles and we are committed to bringing the absolute highest level of service to our clients across the region.”

“As is often the case, one opportunity begets another,” added Kevin MacKenzie, Executive Managing Director, West Region, JLL Capital Markets. “Bramson’s move to LA coupled with Sause’s promotion are significant steps in JLL’s continued growth in such a vital market. The current scale and connectivity across our platform and other service lines will benefit tremendously from their added leadership and we are excited to have all three of these leaders come together to continue to capitalize on our current momentum in Southern California.”

A 30-year industry veteran, Bramson currently serves as Senior Managing Director and co-head of the Chicago office of JLL Capital Markets. He joined HFF in 2005, which was acquired by JLL in 2019. During that time, he has completed more than $13 billion of investment sales and advisory transactions with a primary focus on office properties. Bramson completed his undergraduate studies at Indiana University Bloomington and holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Gies College of Business at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Currently a Managing Director in the Los Angeles Capital Markets group, Sause has more than 13 years of commercial real estate experience. He joined HFF in 2011 as an Analyst and has closed more than $8.7 billion in debt and equity advisory transactions, a testament to his deep bench of client relationships. Since JLL’s acquisition of HFF, he has been instrumental in mentoring the next generation of commercial real estate professionals both inside the company and across Southern California. Sause graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a bachelor’s degree in economics.  

“I’m looking forward to making the move to Los Angeles, which is the second largest MSA in the U.S.,” Bramson said. “As the most connected intermediary in the country it’s important JLL places an emphasis on building out our full suite of services in the LA area through both veteran and up and coming leaders in the sector.”
