Last night was a historic one for JLL New England as the company took home four of the year’s most prestigious honors at the Commercial Brokers Association (CBA) Achievement Awards. This signature event brings together several hundred of the most influential leaders and decision makers from the Massachusetts brokerage industry to honor the year’s most impressive deals and most distinguished professionals.
We are proud to announce that JLL New England took home the award in the following categories:
Broker of the Year: Bill Barrack
This is considered to be the most highly-regarded individual honor a broker can receive, and is in recognition of a career’s worth of achievements. Since joining the firm in 1984, Bill has represented a number of high-profile clients including John Hancock Financial Services, Morgan Stanley, TIAA-CREF and others, in some of the market’s most notable deals. In 2015, Bill led the team on one of the largest leases of the year, BNY Mellon’s 250,000-square-foot lease at One Boston Place. Bill has previously won 5 CBA Deals of the Year throughout his distinguished career in 1993, 1994, 1999, 2008, and 2015.
Rising Star: Jordan Yarboro
Jordan Yarboro has risen through the ranks at JLL to become one of the company’s top young talents. He was instrumental in some of 2015’s biggest deals, including Microsoft’s 54,000-square-foot lease at 5/15 Wayside Road Burlington. He contributed in negotiations for EMD Millipore and SunGard, and is on the leasing team for 1-3 Burlington Woods, Burlington, and 55 Walkers Brook, Reading.
Boston Office Deal of the Year: BNY Mellon Lease at One Boston Place
BNY Mellon’s 15-year extension of approximately 250,000 square feet at One Boston Place represented the largest office lease signed in the city of Boston during 2015.
