Property firm JLL promotes talented trio

Alastair Stang, Deirdrie Thom and Janey Douglas

JLL, Scotland’s leading property consultancy, has promoted two members of staff from its Edinburgh office to Associate and another to Senior Surveyor.

All three newly promoted staff joined JLL through its graduate employment scheme and have continued to rise through the firm’s ranks.

Janey Douglas has been promoted within the Capital Markets team from Senior Surveyor to Associate. Janey, who joined JLL in 2013, will continue advising clients on commercial property investments in Scotland. She previously advised on the sale of Glasgow office development Skypark for in excess of £80m at the end of 2017.

Deirdre Thom of the firm’s Planning & Renewables team joined JLL in 2011. She moves from Senior Planning Consultant to Associate and will remain working across Scotland on some of the highest profile planning and renewable projects.

Alastair Stang, who joined the firm in 2015, moves from Surveyor to Senior Surveyor within JLL’s Office Agency team in Edinburgh. Stang picked up CoStar’s Rising Star Award at an event earlier this year.

During their time with JLL, Janey, Alastair and Deirdre have completed their professional exams through the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), respectively.

Alasdair Humphery, lead director for JLL in Scotland, said: “These promotions are thoroughly well-deserved and are reflective of the impressive work each has been delivering for our clients. We pride ourselves on our commitment to develop, attract and retain the best talent our industry produces. These promotions are testament to this determination and I’m excited to see how all three progress in their new roles and help our clients achieve their ambitions.”

Another product of JLL’s graduate programme, Hannah Done of the firm’s Edinburgh office recently achieved her Masters of Science in Real Estate from UCEM (University College of Estate Management) with distinction.

Earlier this year JLL was named by LinkedIn as the sixth best place to work in the UK.

In Scotland, JLL employs around 120 members of staff in its two offices, acting on some of the largest, most prestigious schemes in the country.

JLL advises developers, investors and occupiers in all major property markets, covering offices; retail and leisure; industrial and logistics; residential; mixed-use schemes; planning and renewables and development land.
