JLL adds two retail experts to Chicago team

Shannon Pope and Patrick Owens have joined JLL as senior vice presidents of retail advisory services, based in Chicago. Pope and Owens have supported retailers and investors operating in the Chicago region with over four decades of combined experience in the commercial real estate industry. In their new roles, they’ll focus on growing the firm’s Chicago retail advisory service offerings.

“We are always looking to expand our team of retail advisory experts in Chicago. We think this is a great opportunity to tap into Shannon and Patrick’s extensive local experience to bring our team to the next level as their deep knowledge of the local market will be invaluable to our clients,” said Dan Ryan, president of JLL’s central region.

Pope and Owens have extensive experience advising tenants throughout the country in all areas of retail real estate including portfolio optimization, strategic planning, market analysis, site selection and execution. They have both managed expansion strategies for notable tenants including Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, PNC Bank, Chase Bank, AMC Theatres and Tuesday Morning, among many others. They bring significant expertise when it comes to healthcare real estate, recently working on behalf of Tenet Healthcare and Ascension Healthcare in Illinois and Indiana.

“Chicago is both JLL’s backyard and one of the most important retail markets in the country. With Shannon and Patrick now with us as partners, we plan to build around their collective medical expertise to expand our retail service offering and grow the healthcare aspect of our business—a segment we believe is poised for explosive growth,” said Naveen Jaggi, president of retail advisory services and capital markets at JLL.

“By joining JLL, Patrick and I plan to contribute our expertise, experience and relationships in order to compliment the already impressive team in Chicago,” Pope said. “The unparalleled level of resources and support that JLL provides will help us excel when it comes to successfully meeting our clients’ needs.”
