Robert Kossar, who has led Jones Lang LaSalle's Industrial practice in New Jersey since joining the firm in 2007, has been named Market Director. In his new role, Kossar will be responsible for overseeing and expanding Jones Lang LaSalle's extensive service capabilities in the New Jersey and Long Island markets.

Jonathan Meisel, who has served as Market Director since the firm's 2004 entrance into the New Jersey market, will transition into an office leasing broker role, in which he will focus on growing the firm's New Jersey data center and sustainability practices, as well as further developing and expanding relationships with many of Jones Lang LaSalle's most prominent clients.

"These changes will support the continued growth of our New Jersey and Long Island operations and enhance our ability to leverage the skill sets of our leaders to deliver the highest quality services to our clients," stated Stephen Schlegel, Market Director of Jones Lang LaSalle's Tri-State region. "Since entering the New Jersey market in 2004, under Jon's leadership we have successfully strengthened our firm's position with new office openings, significant brokerage assignments and the addition of 600 of the industry's best and brightest professionals to our team. These organizational changes are designed to ensure continued momentum into 2013 and beyond."

A recognized industry leader, Kossar has extensive experience on both the ownership and brokerage sides of commercial real estate, having represented numerous top-tier public, private and institutional owners, as well as public and private occupiers, locally and across the United States. As leader of the firm's Industrial practice in New Jersey, Kossar helped establish Jones Lang LaSalle as the market's premier industrial brokerage. During his tenure, the team has completed more than 40 million square feet of industrial lease transactions.

 "As we continue to solidify our market leadership in the office and industrial sectors, Rob is uniquely qualified to oversee the development and implementation of strategic growth plans," Schlegel said. "His deep knowledge of the market, proven leadership skills and entrepreneurial spirit will serve us well as we look to expand Jones Lang LaSalle's market share in one of the largest industrial and office markets in the country."

In addition to serving as New Jersey Market Director, Kossar will continue to be directly involved with Industrial client assignments, serve on Jones Lang LaSalle's national Brokerage Executive Committee and head the firm's Industrial Executive Committee for the Americas.

"My focus going forward will be to build on the strong foundation Jon has helped create to further increase the scope and quality of our services in New Jersey and Long Island," Kossar said. "Over the past eight years, Jon has helped establish our firm as one of the region's most active and respected commercial real estate firms, and we will continue to look to him for his expertise and insight as he transitions to his true passion of working directly with clients."

With three New Jersey offices as well as an office in Melville, Long Island, the operation employs more than 600 of the region's most respected industry experts, offering office and industrial brokerage, tenant and landlord representation, project and development services, property management and capital markets services. The operation also serves as the local service provider for the firm's global and national corporate clients that have a presence in New Jersey.
