Jones Lang LaSalle Named Highest Ranked Real Estate Services Firm on IAOP 2010 Global Outsourcing 100 List

International Association of Outsourcing Professionals ranks Jones Lang LaSalle highest among all corporate real estate and facility service providers

SINGAPORE, MAY 4, 2010 — Jones Lang LaSalle announced today that it has been named the highest ranked commercial real estate services firm on the 2010 Global Outsourcing 100®, the annual ranking of high-quality service providers across all industries as determined by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®).

The 2010 Global Outsourcing 100 recognizes the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors. These rankings are based on applications received and evaluated by an independent judging panel organized by IAOP. The 2010 panel is led by IAOP Chairman Michael F. Corbett. Compared to service providers across all industries, Jones Lang LaSalle ranked at number 12 on the list.

In addition to the Global Outsourcing 100, IAOP issued a series of lists of companies that performed best against certain criteria. Jones Lang LaSalle was listed among the top five Corporate Services providers across all categories, and was similarly listed as a top outsourcing firm to several specific industries, including the financial services, pharmaceutical and technology industries. Companies on these sub-lists are not ranked but are listed alphabetically.

“Our ability to forge strategic alliance partnerships with our clients and align with their interests allows us to deliver results-driven solutions,” said Stuart Hicks, Global CEO of Corporate Solutions at Jones Lang LaSalle. “This total client focus, supported by our integrated service platform, enables our corporate real estate partners to maximize productivity within their departments, their portfolios, and across their organizations.”

“In Asia Pacific, corporate real estate outsourcing has gained strong traction in recent years and organizations are looking for greater outcomes from their service providers,” said John Forrest, CEO of Corporate Solutions for Jones Lang LaSalle in Asia Pacific. “This award is testament to our ability to consistently deliver on the expectations of our clients across the region and globally.”

“We have been at the forefront of the corporate real estate industry in Asia Pacific for 15 years and continue to break new ground alongside our clients. In the first quarter of this year, we have already secured a number of significant appointments, including the largest corporate property service management contract in the region with Telstra in Australia, and several key regional contracts in the banking and finance and manufacturing sectors,” said Mr Forrest. “We expect to see more real estate outsourcing from European and Asian corporations as they mature and realise their growth ambitions beyond their home markets.”
