Companies of all sizes, and increasingly retailers, are implementing integrated portfolio management solutions to make smarter real estate decisions and solve their business challenges. To better support retailers with their real estate portfolios, JLL today announced that it has welcomed back Geno Coradini to the firm as Executive Vice President, Retail Integrated Portfolio Services (IPS) Lead, where he will be responsible for working with our retail tenant representative brokers nationally to support JLL’s retailer client base.
“We are seeing the real estate strategies, particularly of our retailer clients’, shift to be more focused around integrating their portfolio-related needs,” said Steve Ramseur, President, Occupier Services, JLL. “Our approach is to align platform around our client’s business objectives, which enables smarter corporate real estate execution, and Geno will play an important role in implementing these strategies.”
Prior to re-joining JLL, Coradini spent the past two years as Vice President of Real Estate and Market Optimization for Advance Auto Parts Inc., the largest automotive aftermarket parts provider in North America. Coradini joined JLL when the firm acquired The Standard Group eight years ago. Later, upon joining the Retail Group, he was part of our retail outsourcing services group and was instrumental in winning several key accounts for JLL.
“We’re thrilled to bring Geno back on board as we continue to grow JLL’s retail services throughout the United States,” said Naveen Jaggi, President Retail Brokerage for JLL. “Geno played a crucial role in expanding our Retail Portfolio Optimization practice and now brings a retailer perspective back to the firm. He has a deep knowledge of JLL’s varied services and how they can be best coordinated to solve retailers’ pain points. This unique combination of end user and service provider expertise gives our retail brokers and their clients a competitive advantage in strategically positioning their portfolios for future growth.”
“JLL has grown its retailer client base and brokerage business immensely during the two years I spent with Advance Auto Parts,” added Coradini. “Moving to an in-house position was an incredible experience, and I look forward to integrating what I learned on the other side of the business as we further expand JLL’s retail services.”
