Aug. 7, 2001
Jones Lang LaSalle operates in more than 100 markets on five continents.

This industry leader faces a big transition at the end of the year. But, it's one corporate officials see as positive. Longtime Jones Lang LaSalle Partner and current Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stuart L. Scott will retire and hand the reins over to his hand-picked successor, Jones Lang LaSalle President and Chief Operating Officer Christopher A. Peacock.

"His vision and strategic direction will carry Jones Lang LaSalle to new levels of growth," Scott says of Peacock.
Growth has fast become a way of life at the firm, following the 1999 merger of LaSalle Partners and the Jones Lang Wootton companies, which created today's organization.

In 2000, the company reached 32-percent growth in its adjusted net earnings over 1999. The total adjusted net earnings of $43.4 million exceeded the firm's goal of 30-percent growth for the year.

Jones Lang LaSalle operates in more than 100 markets on five continents. Its nearly 7,350 employees provide management services, implementation services, and investment management services on a local, regional, and global level to owners, occupiers, and investors. Its portfolio boasts approximately 700 million square feet of space under management worldwide.

LaSalle Investment Management, the company's global investment management business has $22.5 billion assets under management.
