Guy Gueirard joins JLL as new EMEA Director of Logistics & Industrial

​​EMEA, 10 July 2013 - JLL is very pleased to announce the appointment of Guy Gueirard as Director of EMEA Logistics & Industrial.  Guy will be based in Paris and will work very closely with the country lead directors of Logistics & Industrial businesses across the EMEA region and with regional leaders in Asia Pacific and the Americas.  Guy will also link in closely to JLL’s Paris-based Supply Chain Consultancy team.
Guy has joined JLL from Kuehne + Nagel where he has been vice president of global retail business development for the past three years.  Prior to that, Guy held senior logistics-focused roles for CEVA Logistics and STEF.  With deep experience of operational and growth strategies gained at boardroom level, Guy is a logistics rather than real estate specialist.  This, combined with his proven leadership and business development skills, is highly complementary to JLL’s strong existing capabilities in logistics and industrial real estate advice in countries across EMEA.

“Guy’s new role will have two main areas of focus.  Firstly, to provide leadership and co-ordination for our Logistics & Industrial businesses at the EMEA level including creating new clarity and momentum around how we take our offer to market and demonstrating clear differentiation from the competition.  Secondly, driven by his knowledge of the sector and its strategic requirements, Guy will focus on business development activities including fostering new client relationships, securing new work for our country-based teams, and establishing new multi-disciplinary and multi-country assignments.” Said Richard Batten, JLL EMEA Management Board.

“The twin forces of advancing technology and globalisation are continuing to rapidly transform the logistics and industrial sector, and with it the real estate requirements of our clients operating in that space who increasingly expect, and need, a seamlessly integrated international service provision. As a leader in EMEA logistics and industrial real estate markets, JLL already has substantial competitive advantages, but to truly differentiate our offer from our competitors we need to continue building an ever-more agile, flexible and highly co-ordinated pan-EMEA Logistics & Industrial capability. That is our shared challenge and a key part of Guy’s new role.” Said Phil Marsden, International Director, UK & EMEA Industrial Capital Markets.
