JLL promotes Sandeep Sethi to Asia Pacific division president for work dynamics
Sandeep Sethi has been appointed Division President of Work Dynamics in the Asia Pacific region by global real estate advisory firm, JLL. He will take on the role alongside his current position as Managing Director and Head of Work Dynamics for West Asia.
Based out of Gurgaon, Sethi will report to Susheel Koul, JLL’s CEO for Work Dynamics in the Asia Pacific. He will be accountable for growing JLL’s North Asia market share in mainland China and Hong Kong while overseeing the services delivered to clients in North Asia.
With over 27 years of experience in the corporate world and 10 years of them being at JLL, Sethi has forged deep client relationships and seen the business grow substantially. It now manages over 160 million sq ft of office space across 1,500 client sites in India, Sri Lanka, Mauritius and Bangladesh – the largest occupier business in West Asia.
JLL’s Work Dynamics unit provides services adding value to the whole real estate life cycle for occupiers. This includes integrated facilities management, construction management services, sustainability and workplace consulting, workplace experience and lease transaction management.
Koul said of the appointment: “Sandeep is an established leader and a respected client advisor with an astute understanding of the dynamic nature of commercial real estate. His appointment reinforces JLL’s commitment to developing and elevating our people to serve our rapidly diversifying client base across Asia Pacific.”
The appointment comes at a crucial time as the Asia Pacific region’s real estate industry trends towards opportunistic investments despite the rate hikes and cooling sentiment seen in 2022. This was highlighted in a recent report by JLL as well as a view on similar investments in 2023 by CBRE. Additionally, strong leadership has been seen promoted by Cushman & Wakefield in the Asia Pacific region.
