JLL Capital Markets adds senior directors in Minneapolis market

JLL Capital Markets has hired Senior Directors Matt Hazelton and Cory Villaume to specialize in retail investment sales and advisory transactions in Minneapolis-St. Paul and the Midwest.

With a focus on multi-tenant and net-leased retail sales, Hazelton and Villaume come to JLL from another leading commercial real estate firm. Over their careers they have been responsible for nearly $1 billion of retail property dispositions and acquisitions. Their addition to the JLL Capital Markets team in Minneapolis, which is led by Senior Managing Directors David Berglund and Colin Ryan, fills an important gap in retail services for the office.

Reporting to both Berglund and Ryan, Hazelton earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and received his master’s in business administration from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Business, and Villaume is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.

“David and I are thrilled to welcome this powerhouse retail duo to JLL Capital Markets,” Ryan said. “They are the perfect addition to our growing Minneapolis team to help us achieve our continual goal of putting the best team on the field in order to provide the highest level of client service.”
