JLL Valuation Advisory has hired Managing Director Tom Kim to lead its Chicago operations and expand the office’s footprint in the Midwest as part of the group’s national growth strategy. 

Kim joins JLL from another leading commercial real estate services firm, where he served as the industrial and self-storage practice leader for its Chicago office. Since 2006, he has honed his expertise in valuation for a wide range of asset classes with a focus in the Midwest.   

“Tom coming aboard and leading our Chicago office is going to help propel our Midwest operations to new levels and be a valuable contribution to our overall national growth strategy,” said Tony Lenamon, Americas Head of Valuation Advisory. “A proven leader, his experience in spearheading and growing an office is priceless, and we are excited to welcome him to the team.”

Kim’s focus includes driving growth within the market through expertise and efficiencies, mentoring and recruiting team members who will provide best-in-class service and fostering an inclusive culture that encourages collaboration within the valuation advisory group and JLL’s other service lines.

Managing Director Joe Miller, who formerly ran the office, is now focusing solely on leading the retail sector nationally for JLL’s Valuation Advisory group.
