ones Lang LaSalle shortens name to “JLL”

Jones Lang LaSalle shortens name to “JLL” and unveils new logo

Modernized name suits global language and digital applications

Underscoring its global operation, scale and vision for the future, Jones Lang LaSalle, the professional services and investment management firm specialising in real estate, has announced that it is now using the name “JLL” and introducing a refreshed logo.

The shorter name and new logo are:

• Easily recognized and visible in countries around the world

• Memorable and easily pronounced in languages worldwide

• Suitable for digital applications and mobile channels

Shortening its name to JLL is a natural evolution of the firm’s historically rich brand, recognising that it is a truly global company located in multiple markets, with a wide range of expertise applied through many different client services. It also represents its adaptation to different communication styles in different countries, languages and channels, and especially the use of digital and online.

Nick Hargreaves, Managing Director of JLL New Zealand, who has been a part of JLL for 26 years’, says “The shortening of our name to JLL was a natural transition for us as we continue to remain current and redefine our historically rich brand. We live in a digital world, if we did not adapt our processes and marketing to reflect this, we would not be the leaders in the industry.”

Hargreaves continues, “Our brand continues to characterise our unique service offerings and the full suite of services which go beyond the usual real estate and property mix.”

Charles Doyle, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at JLL said: “Although we are adapting our name, our cultural foundation of collaboration, integrity and delivering real value to our clients, people and investors remains constant and unchanging. JLL is easily pronounced, remembered, visible and representative of our firm wherever we serve our clients around the world.”

Doyle continued: “The JLL ‘Worldmark’ logo symbolises all of this: a global company with local roots, built from multiple types of expertise, working in collaboration with clients wherever they need our services.”

The JLL name and new logo will be rolled out globally over the next two years. The firm’s legal name, Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated, and the name of its wholly owned subsidiary, LaSalle Investment Management, will remain unchanged.
