JLL shuffles to execs as part of growth strategy

JLL, a global real-estate consultancy, has appointed Michael Glancy as country head for Thailand, replacing Suphin Mechuchep, who will become chairperson for operations in Thailand.

The company has also appointed Chris Archibold as country head for Singapore.

These changes, effective from January, come as part of the company’s plan to strengthen its capabilities and align with its growth ambitions in the region. All three executives will report to Chris Fossick, who is CEO of Southeast Asia operations.

In Thailand, Glancy will oversee the company’s business growth. Having worked at JLL Hong Kong since 2019, he relocated to Bangkok in February 2020 and has been leading the transaction business since. He will partner closely with regional and local business lines to generate new leads and opportunities.

Meanwhile, as chair of operations in Thailand, Suphin has successfully managed and expanded the company over the past 17 years. An experienced real-estate veteran, she will continue driving key business priorities and nurture the strong client networks she has built over her career spanning more than three decades.

Archibold has worked with JLL in Singapore for 17 years and spearheaded the office-leasing business before taking over as head of leasing for Singapore in 2018.

In his new role, he will drive Singapore’s sales strategy and business development by connecting local and regional business functions as well as leading markets advisory.
