Jones Lang LaSalle has announced the promotion of Susan Mason to Executive Vice President. In this role, Mason, an agency-leasing specialist with more than 20 years of experience representing landlords, will continue to oversee New Jersey office agency leasing portfolios.

Having earned industry recognition for her passion and attention to detail, Mason was one of the first industry professionals hired by Jones Lang LaSalle during its recent expansion, and has been chosen nationally to be a member of the company's mentoring program for new professionals.

"Susan has developed a strong reputation for creating lasting relationships with our agency clients, and continues to make tremendous contributions to our firm's success in New Jersey," said Jonathan Meisel, New Jersey Market Director for Jones Lang LaSalle. "Her background in property and construction management has provided her with a unique perspective that resonates with landlords, enabling her to create and execute effective marketing programs for agency assignments that consistently generate strong results."

Despite the economic downturn and challenging market conditions, Mason has been instrumental in completing more than 60 transactions for Jones Lang LaSalle's agency clients over the past 30 months, totalling more than $180 million. Throughout her extensive career in commercial real estate brokerage, Mason has represented a long list of both private owners and developers, as well as institutionally owned properties.

"We sought out Susan early in our expansion because she is viewed by the real estate industry as the best at what she does," Meisel said. "She sets the bar for integrity and possesses an unparalleled work ethic."
