JLL leaders get educated on cutting-edge innovations at MIT
While in town in Boston, JLL’s Americas Executive Committee recently visited one of the world’s foremost institutions for innovation, MIT. The group of roughly 15 was led by JLL Americas CEO Greg O’Brien and included Global President Christian Ulbrich, as well as several national businesses leaders. Local Market Director Jim Tierney and Cambridge real estate expert Joe Flaherty joined me as our resident Boston participants.
Operating a large leading business like JLL can be all consuming, but we value and make time for outside perspective and continual learning. Our business is rapidly becoming an innovation and technology oriented business and the visit to MIT was a great way to open everyone’s eyes to what’s on the cutting edge. Bringing our leadership out into the market and specifically seeing East Cambridge, where Joe Flaherty gave the group a tour, reinforced what Greater Boston is all about.
