Atlanta-based Mueller Named COO of Retail at JLL
Jones Lang LaSalle has promoted Kristin Mueller to Chief Operating Officer (COO).
Coinciding with the Retail Group’s ongoing roll out of expanded services on a nationwide basis, the firm also has established new leadership roles, including the promotion of John Bemis and Geno Coradini to Retail Market Lead in Atlanta/Southeast and Dallas/Southwest, respectively.
As the COO of Retail based in JLL’s Atlanta office, Mueller will be responsible for executing the firm’s expanded services platform. She will continue to lead the business development team and will also oversee the Client Accounting, Property Management and Specialty Leasing departments.
Mueller, has more than 27 years of experience in the retail industry, with particular expertise in managing diverse property types across the United States for third-party clients that include lenders, special servicers, developers, institutional investors and private owners of retail and mixed-use properties.
Prior to her tenure at JLL she was associated with Urban Shopping Centers, Inc., where she held a variety of positions including general manager of shopping centers.
John Bemis, formerly Director of Leasing & Development, was promoted to Retail Market Lead for Atlanta/Southeast region and will oversee the JLL retail platform which includes tenant representation, landlord representation services including leasing, property management, accounting services and development across the region.
Geno Coradini was also promoted to the Retail Market Lead for Dallas/Southwest region and will have similar responsibilities as Bemis. He joined the firm in 2008, shortly after JLL acquired The Standard Group.
With more than 15 years of retail real estate, he has extensive experience in field execution and corporate management at the regional and national level. Prior to joining Jones Lang LaSalle he was a Managing Director at FedEx Kinko’s and a Divisional Vice President with Family Dollar Stores.
These new appointments follow Retail Market Lead positions established in the past several months in Florida, California, Hawaii and the Midwest.
Bemis and Coradini’s new roles are part of the firm’s initiative, launched earlier this year, to intensify resources at the local level by leveraging its Retail Tenant Representation capabilities – formerly known as Corporate Retail Solutions – to provide enhanced retail tenant representation services.
In addition to these promotions, the firm announced that Lew Kornberg will lead the Retail Tenant Representation business, working with the local Retail Market Leads to enhance tenant representation services.
