Sandeep Sethi has been appointed as division president of JLL’s work dynamics business in the Asia Pacific region. He brings with him over 27 years of corporate experience, 10 of which he spent at JLL. In his new role, Sethi will oversee services delivered to clients both in West Asia, where he has been managing director and head of work dynamics since his appointment, and North Asia, where he will also be accountable for growing JLL’s market share in mainland China and Hong Kong.
Reporting to Susheel Koul, JLL’s CEO for work dynamics in the Asia Pacific region, Sethi will be based in Gurgaon. His appointment reinforces JLL’s commitment to developing and elevating its people to serve the company’s rapidly diversifying client base throughout the Asia Pacific region.
JLL’s work dynamics business unit provides integrated facilities management, construction management services, sustainability and workplace consulting, workplace experience and lease transaction management for all real estate life cycle needs of its occupiers. Sethi has been instrumental in forging deep client relationships, leading to the largest occupier business in West Asia spanning over 160 million sq ft of office space across 1,500 client sites in India, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, and Bangladesh.
Koul expresses his confidence in Sethi’s appointment, praising his “astute understanding of the dynamic nature of commercial real estate”.
As the company continues to reassess its strategies and services in light of the financial and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sethi’s increased presence in the Asia Pacific region indicates that JLL is looking to capitalize on the opportunities within a post-pandemic market.
