Based in Paris, Honein will join LaSalle’s global management committee as part of his new role, which takes effect on 30 November.
Honein has been with LaSalle and JLL for more than 21 years. He was appointed head of LaSalle’s EMEA investor relations in April 2021 and has in that role served as a leader both within the IR group and for the firm.
