JLL Adds Bay Area Talent as Logistics and Industrial Users Clamor for Infill Sites

MENLO PARK, CA – December 11, 2019 – Jason Cranston, a veteran (20-year) sales and leasing broker with deep insight into the San Francisco Peninsula industrial and logistics market, has joined JLL as a Managing Director in the firm’s Menlo Park/Silicon Valley office. 

He joins a team covering the greater Bay Area industrial and logistics/supply chain market which includes Managing Directors Greg Matter and Jason Ovadia and which already represents some of the region’s largest industrial owners, developers and tenants.    

“When it comes to the San Francisco Peninsula industrial sales and leasing market, Jason is not only the widely acknowledged expert, he is also a highly trusted and much-respected advisor and the perfect complement to our existing bench of industrial specialists,” says Bart Lammersen, Managing Director and Silicon Valley Market Leader.

“I am honored to have been invited to join such a talented group of highly regarded professionals and look forward to fulfilling JLL’s expectations as it relates to their Bay Industrial Team,” said Cranston.

With a wide range of industrial and logistics tenants increasingly seeking to be closer to the urban core, especially in growing markets like the San Francisco Bay Area, demand for infill sites and properties is at a fever pitch.

“As more companies look to complete first and last mile delivery infrastructure in the highly competitive Bay Area real estate market, there is a need for global capabilities and deep local knowledge. Jason’s addition to the team further deepens our specialist knowledge and reach throughout the Bay Area for the benefit of our clients,” said Greg Matter, Managing Director.

Cranston is the fifth new member to join JLL’s brokerage team in Silicon Valley this year, according to Lammersen, who reinforced JLL’s commitment to providing clients throughout Northern California with the best tools and the deepest expertise in order to help them make the best decisions in an increasingly complex commercial real estate market. “We continue to aggressively seek out and bring in the right talent to help achieve these goals,” he said.
