LaSalle will bid farewell to veteran of four decades

FarewellLaSalle Investment Management is preparing to say goodbye to a senior employee who has worked at the firm for 40 years. Ian Mackie joined Jones Lang Wootton in 1978 as a retail leasing agent in Sydney. His role developed into real estate investment management when the company merged with LaSalle Partners in 2000. He is currently head of strategic partnerships for Asia Pacific. “Every time I felt I needed a change in direction in my career, the extraordinary breadth of the JLL/LaSalle platform was able to throw up a new opportunity that was both a challenge, really interesting, and really exciting,” said Mackie. “There was never a need to look elsewhere!” Mackie launched and raised capital for the LaSalle Asia Recovery Fund, the firm’s first Asia fund. He also oversaw the first iterations of the LaSalle Japan Logistics Fund series and LaSalle Asia Opportunity Fund series. In the first quarter of the year, LaSalle Investment Management had $60 billion under management in private and public equity and private debt investments globally. ©2018 funds global asia
