JLL Promotes Three and Welcomes New VP, Projects

0 CommentBy

When JLL talks about “Achieving Ambitions,” that applies to our staff as much as our clients. That’s why we are so excited to announce that we’ve promoted three of our incredible employees, and welcomed one more to the JLL family!

Our own Mike Morrone, formerly Managing Director and Broker Lead, has been promoted to JLL’s Philadelphia Market Lead where he will be responsible for overall product quality and delivery across all business lines. He will focus on clients, business development, recruiting, and market growth for the Americas and international clients, and his leadership will help drive some of the region’s most impactful transactions, and the success of his clients and team.

If you ask Mike, he credits JLL’s success to our ability to prioritize its clients. If you ask us, he’s had a little something to do with it. After all, Mike’s been continuously recognized for his excellence, serving on JLL’s National Leadership Council and being named to the company’s “Top Gun” list from 2010-2016.

Meanwhile Tony Juliano, our previous Senior Vice President of Operations, has stepped up to the plate as Chief Operating Officer. He will oversee JLL Philadelphia’s Leasing, Capital Markets, Property Management, and Project Management service lines, as well its Human Resources, Finance, Research, and Marketing departments.

We are proud to say that Tony has been with JLL since 2010. We’re even more proud to say that he has already been recognized with a Rising Star Award at the Philadelphia Business Journal CFOs of the Year Awards

“I am very excited to take on my new role, partnering with Mike Morrone and our local management team as we continue to drive growth for JLL Philadelphia,” Tony told the press. “Our clients believe in JLL as one-stop shop for their real estate needs, and we look forward to expanding our existing relationships, winning new business, and gaining market share in the Philadelphia region.”

Additionally, Dodie Williams has been promoted to Vice President and PDS Lead. Previously, Dodie served as Director of the Project and Development Services (PDS) team for Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

Since joining the JLL team in 2008, Dodie knew she had found her calling. 

She has credited her passion for her work to the relationships she has built with clients, and believes her new position as VP and PDS lead will allow her to continue to build valuable relationships and spread the goals of the PDS team.  

“I believe we all bring unique skills and perspective to our job and uncovering what drives or motivates a person can be the key to success,” says Dodie. “I want to be an influencer and mentor to my team and bring out the best in them so they can provide exceptional service to our clients.”

Finally, JLL has welcomed Robert Fogarasi as Vice President, Projects. In his new role, Robert will direct, manage and execute significant project management assignments for JLL, as well as oversee projects through completion of construction and occupancy. Additionally, Robert will aid in company growth and business development. Prior to joining the JLL team, Robert spent 12 years with Binswanger, most recently serving as Vice President and Senior Project Manager. He holds a BA in Business Administration from Pierce College.

We look at this roster of talent, and couldn’t be more proud that Mike, Tony, Dodie, and Rob are a part of our team. We look forward to helping them achieve their ambitions, and are confident that they will do the same for our clients!
