Yama Mahasher, COO JLL Germany and Head of Operations Central Europe, will leave the company at his own request to devote himself to entrepreneurial projects as Managing Partner at ESG advisor Westbridge Advisory from mid-September 2022. The company specializes in sustainability and energy efficiency consulting for real estate. Yama Mahasher had joined JLL as a trainee in 2011 and had worked in the team of global CEO Christian Ulbrich, among others, before his appointment as COO. Over the past two and a half years, he had helped shape the strategic development of the company in Germany in close coordination with the management and the German Operations Board. Yama Mahasher's previous responsibilities will be assumed by the members of the Operations Board in the future.
At Westbridge, Yama Mahasher intends to drive the strategic growth of the company with its more than 100 sustainability experts and will be responsible, among other things, for the areas of Corporate Development, Business Operations, which includes HR and Finance, as well as Internationalization.
Dr. Konstantin Kortmann, Country Head JLL Germany: "Over the past eleven years, Yama Mahasher has accompanied and helped shape developments at JLL in many key positions. In doing so, he has optimally seized and utilized the development opportunities in JLL's global network. I would like to thank him very much for his great professional and personal commitment to JLL. Particularly during the difficult phase of the pandemic, he played a decisive role as COO in ensuring that we at JLL were able to continue the safe operation of the German offices and implement important trend-setting initiatives. I am very happy for Yama that he will now take on an entrepreneurial challenge. I wish him all the best for this and look forward to further strategic cooperation with Westbridge Advisory."
Rüdiger Salzmann, Managing Partner of Westbridge Advisory: "With Yama Mahasher, we are gaining an industry-recognized real estate expert with strong national and international networks. The fact that such a top-class person has decided to join us proves how fundamentally the topic of sustainability has arrived in the real estate industry. We are convinced that Yama, with his experience at JLL, will leverage many other corporate potentials and push our international growth course."
