CEO of the Americas Market at JLL to Bring a Real Estate Focus to CEO Dinner at Summit

For almost a decade, John Gates has been heading up the world’s largest commercial real estate firm’s efforts in America - Jones Lange LaSalle (JLL). JLL has 253 offices worldwide.

BuiltWorlds is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to welcome John to our upcoming series of CEO Forum dinners to give a presentation about how the real estate giant is leveraging technology to grow its footprint even further.

John Gates, CEO of Americas Market, JLL

With major initiatives like its $380 million JLL Spark Fund, the firm has made major investments in technology both within their organization and in the industry around it. In addition to their venture investments, they have been a serial acquirer of industry tech companies such as Hank and Envio Systems. 

At the 2023 Buildings Conference this past May, we heard from Todd Burns, President and Development Services at JLL, speak about how the global innovator is operationalizing this technology in project management and other parts of the business. 

Now, as part of our CEO Forum speaker series Gates will speak more broadly about the commercial real estate industry, changes in the marketplace, and JLL's journey to position for success in our rapidly changing world.  


About the CEO Forum 

Limited to just 30 representatives, the BuiltWorlds CEO Forum is the peer group of C-Suite executives in the AEC space that was founded this year as part of our Business Strategy research track. 

The majority of research the BuiltWorlds analyst team conducts throughout the year revolves around contractors' sentiments and adoption of the wide-array of technology solutions in the marketplace to help guide them to find the best solution for their projects. However, the Business Strategy Track is designed to deliver sentiments at higher levels within these organizations.
