In his new role, Lenamon will focus on providing a client experience not readily achieved in the market, which includes building a platform that leverages JLL’s global expertise to deliver local real estate solutions.

Lenamon joined JLL as a Managing Director in January 2020 to lead the National Valuation Advisory Multi-Housing practice, which he will continue concurrent with his new duties. During 2020, his group enjoyed a 45 percent year-over-year increase in revenue, despite the pandemic.

Lenamon assumed his new role on July 1 from Managing Director Blake Lacher, who is shifting his full-time focus to the growth of JLL’s Energy Solutions business in the Americas. Lacher, who has been with JLL for more than eight years, has made his mark on JLL’s Valuation Advisory service, leading Corporate Finance and Net Lease and creating the company’s regulated securities business. His efforts helped stabilize the business and prepare it for future growth.

Lenamon has more than 30 years of professional experience and holds a degree in finance and real estate from The University of Texas at Arlington.
