Jones Lang LaSalle has been named Company of the Decade 2003 – 2013 at the prestigious 10th CEE Real Estate Quality awards gala, organized by CEE Insight Forum in association with the Financial Times. This accolade is given to the company, which has made the most significant impact on the Central and Eastern Europe real estate markets over the last 10 years.
Jones Lang LaSalle was also awarded two out of four agent awards in the CEE region for the company’s performance in 2012. The firm was named the Agent of the Year in CEE for Capital Markets – for the third time in a row – and also claimed the Office Agent of the Year award.
Richard Batten, EMEA Management Board Member, Jones Lang LaSalle, commented: “We take particular pride in winning the Company of The Decade title as the award is an acknowledgement from our clients and industry peers, of Jones Lang LaSalle’s continued and ongoing professionalism and contribution to the real estate industry’s growth in the CEE region. We are truly delighted with such recognition of our work over the years, especially as the category included leading companies of all types, with top developers and investors also being considered. The title of the Capital Market Agent of 2012 for the third consecutive year and an award for our Office Agency is testament to the consistent delivery of high quality services to our clients across the region and the company’s extensive expertise in the commercial real estate sector”.
The Capital Markets and Office Agency awards were determined by an independent jury panel of key sector decision makers, ranging from developers, landlords, investors and advisors, active in the real estate industry across the CEE region. The Company of the Decade was selected during the gala event, by all guests. The anniversary, 10th edition of the event organized in Warsaw was attended by over 600 property professionals. The voting was monitored by an independent consulting company – Deloitte.
