JLL today announced it has hired Bob Dishler and Jonathan Lachance as Vice Presidents of Retail Leasing, based out of Los Angeles and San Francisco. Dishler and Lachance will lease JLL’s third-party managed retail properties on the West Coast, cultivating relationships with retailers and securing new revenue opportunities for clients.
“Bob and Jonathan are known for getting deals done and creating top-performing properties through leasing,” said Holly Rome, Director of National Retail Leasing for JLL. “Bob has incredibly strong national retailer relationships, and an unparalleled tenacious attitude. And our clients who have varied space needs will get great value from Jonathan’s ability to engage national retailers and unique local shops.”
Dishler and Lachance bring more than 30 years of leasing expertise to JLL, and have a proven track record of retenanting and repurposing regional shopping centers, specialty centers and street retail.
