Robin Broadhurst, the European Chairman of Jones Lang LaSalle, is to leave the company at the end of this year, after 30 years at the firm.
Broadhurst joined Jones Lang Wootton in 1969, became a partner in 1973 and managed the UK business throughout the 1980s. He was made International Chairman in 1992 and took on the role of European Chairman in September 2000, following the company´s merger with LaSalle Partners the previous year.
Commenting on his decision to stand down, Broadhurst said: 'I have been privileged in my 30 years as a partner to witness a period of extraordinary growth across the world. As I move into the next phase of my career, I look forward to closely following the firm´s continued progress.'
Chris Peacock, President and Chief Executive of JLL, added: 'Robin has brought a huge amount of experience and knowledge to the company during the last 34 years. His vision and strategic direction have carried Jones Lang LaSalle to new levels.'
