Industrial Property Management Lead


Seattle, WA

JLL supports the Whole You, personally and professionally.

Our people at JLL are shaping the future of real estate for a better world by combining world class services, advisory and technology to our clients. We are committed to hiring the best, most talented people in our industry; and we support them through professional growth, flexibility, and personalized benefits to manage life in and outside of work. Whether you’ve got deep experience in commercial real estate, skilled trades, and technology, or you’re looking to apply your relevant experience to a new industry, we empower you to shape a brighter way forward so you can thrive professionally and personally.

We are currently seeking an Industrial Property Management (IPM) Lead to lead our Industrial property management team in the Northwest Region (preferably located in Seattle, or NorCal).

What this job involves

This position will have overall responsibility for the industrial property management business in the Northwest Region. Reporting locally with matrix reporting to the head of US industrial property management, this person will have several priorities - leading the industrial property management team, developing and implementing best-in-class industrial property management practices, and growing the industrial property management business in the region.

This position will take a national leadership role on the industrial property management team and will represent JLL to its national and local client base. The IPM Lead will “straddle the fence” between delivering an industry leading property management platform and selling those same services. This position will include a national Client Relationship Management (CRM) role and will have the opportunity for significant client interaction.

Leadership and managing multiple teams

As an IPM Lead at JLL, your tenure in the property management industry will enable you to provide leadership to multiple teams in multiple geographies. You will be focused on the client experience by providing innovative solutions to the client and tenants. Multi-tasking and flexibility are essential skills needed in this role. Essential skills also include exercising and modeling exceptional people management, and delighting in accountability for portfolio results. You will approve key client and internal deliverables including budgets and financial reports, work closely with leasing, investment sales, and other business line partners to identify new opportunities, and initiate business development and retention initiatives. You will leverage your team extensively, developing team members through delegation and identifying opportunities for performance efficiencies. Your thirst for innovation will include a drive to use technology to simplify business, improve relationships, and empower your teams.

Creating strategic and collaborative solutions

You are an individual who sees the big picture, acts decisively and focuses on creating an energized and collaborative environment. As an IPM Lead, you will contribute to the establishment and refinement of work quality, cultural initiatives and best practices to drive results as a team. You will also contribute to developing successful, diverse teams through inclusive and thoughtful means of communication, hiring practices and career development practices. You are focused on strengthening strategic partnerships with clients, pitching new business proposals and delivering innovative solutions to expand our footprint in the marketplace in ways that build our brand and garner referrals and references from those you work with. You are active in the commercial real estate industry, engaged and serving in leadership roles with industry and community organizations that raise JLL’s profile and build relationships with new and existing clients and influencers.

Embracing the human side of business

You are people focused, seeking out and understanding the needs, perspectives and motivations of clients and team members alike. Your ability to manage client and vendor relationships will allow for seamless conflict resolution, account maintenance, and overall development of client relationships.
