Jones Lang LaSalle has appointed Doug Irmscher as market director for Florida. In his new role, Irmscher will oversee the firm's business lines across all major markets in the state, a growing international market for the firm.
Irmscher will succeed Kurt Keaton, who has led JLL's expansion in the state over the past three years. Keaton will now serve as JLL's East Region sales lead for property management.
Prior to joining JLL, Irmscher served as senior vice president at Duke Realty Corp. in Central Florida. There he was responsible for operations in the company's Orlando, Tampa and Jacksonville commercial real estate
portfolios. During his 19 years there, Irmscher held several development, leasing and marketing roles, and was responsible for the development of more than three million square feet of office and industrial projects in the state.
"Doug has a strong track record in working with clients to meet their real estate needs with more than 20 years of industry experience and a deep knowledge and understanding of the Florida marketplace," said Jones Lang LaSalle’s Dave McGarry, managing director markets east. "Throughout his career, he has excelled on both the transactional and development sides of the business and has played an instrumental role in growing commercial real estate portfolios in the state. He is a natural leader and will fit in well with JLL’s collaborative culture."
Irmscher holds a bachelor's degree in finance and real estate from the University of Cincinnati.
JLL, a full-service commercial real estate services firm, has a leasing and management portfolio consisting of more than 28.6 million square feet, including some of the state's most iconic buildings.
