SAN FRANCISCO, April 5, 2012 — In a move to further advance the firm’s services to corporate occupiers, Jones Lang LaSalle today announced that Michael Casolo has been named to lead client services for the firm’s Corporate Solutions division in the Northwest. Casolo, a Managing Director based in the firm’s Palo Alto office, has provided cost, performance and efficiency solutions to the firm’s mid-sized corporate clients in the region since 2009. He now broadens his role to lead similar real estate-based solutions to some of the firm’s largest multinational clients.
“Michael has built a strong and effective business supporting and linking our broad range of services to mid-market corporate occupiers and he now brings his skills and energy to a wider range of corporate clients,” said Jan Pope, head of Corporate Solutions in the West Region.
“This is a new role within the Corporate Solutions organization and Michael will more aggressively connect our local market teams here in the Northwest with solutions offered by our global Corporate Solutions platform for the benefit of a wide range of corporate clients in the region,” said Elizabeth Hearle, Pacific Northwest market director.
Jones Lang LaSalle’s Corporate Solutions teams assist a wide range of corporate occupiers in managing the cost, performance and efficiency of the real estate they own and occupy across an individual market, region, country or worldwide. The firm forms dedicated teams of multi-disciplined professionals collaborating across geographies in order to give clients seamless service and efficiency.
“As corporations emerge from the last few years of economic uncertainty and with the prospect of further challenges ahead, they are looking to us to help deliver greater efficiencies in their real estate portfolios, whether leased or owned and to extract the most value from the outsourcing of real estate functions. Combining our ‘boots on the ground’ local market presence, research and insight with a global platform dedicated solely to the needs of corporate occupiers, provides tremendous additional value and greater efficiency for our clients as they look to navigate the ups and downs of real estate in the markets in which they operate now or plan to in the future,” said Michael Casolo, Managing Director, Corporate Solutions.
Michael is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame. He also undertook graduate study in Urban Planning and Real Estate at Columbia University.
