Experienced leasing team joins JLL Switzerland


​As of 1 May 2014, Philippe Frei, 42, will assume responsibility at JLL for leasing of commercial premises and tenant representation in the German-speaking region of Switzerland. Mr Frei, who has been a specialist in marketing commercial premises for many years, previously fulfilled the same role for one of Switzerland's market leaders and is bringing his previous team of Anita Bleiker and Dina Bamert with him to JLL. Together the team has more than 25 years' experience in commercial leasing and tenant representation. In coordination with Karl-Frank Meinzer, Head Corporate Solution Switzerland, who is responsible for this area of business in French-speaking Switzerland, they will cover the key urban centres in the Swiss commercial property market. 

This marks a further step in JLL's consistent expansion of its service and consultancy business. Since the Swiss branch was established in 2011, the JLL team has more than doubled in size and covers the whole range of property transactions, consultancy and valuations – and now marketing of commercial premises too. These areas are supported by JLL's own, independent research, which collates primary data and uses it to reinforce the in-depth knowledge of the property market that forms one of the key foundations for JLL's services in Switzerland. 

JLL has a global reputation as one of the leading finance, service and consultancy companies in the property sector (NYSE: JLL). The company offers integrated services for property owners, users and investors. JLL employs some 50,000 people worldwide and has offices in more than 1,000 cities across 70 countries. Europe, Asia and the Americas each accounted for one third of 2013's annual turnover of USD 4.5 billion. Turnover from commercial premises marketing alone amounted to USD 1.3 billion.
