Every year The Phoenix Business Journal recognizes 40 young business leaders for efforts in their community and companies. The candidates are evaluated on business success, community involvement, leadership ability and influence. The honorees come from various industries and will join more than 680 alumni that have been recognized over the years. Yesterday, JLL’s Managing Director Andrew Medley was one of these honorees.
Andrew specializes in tenant representation. He represents users of real estate in facility and site acquisition. He is responsible for lease review/negotiations, site evaluation and selection, portfolio management, economic incentives support, strategic planning, construction and tenant improvement management and detailed financial analysis/comparisons for users or real estate. His expertise helps companies establish a solid real estate position, allowing them to relocate to or expand in Phoenix via strategic lease negotiations, site selection, portfolio management, economic incentives, strategic planning, construction management and financial analysis.
Andrew has built his real estate reputation on the same cornerstones he learned early in life: commitment, adversity, integrity, focus and patience. He is honored to work alongside his JLL team and mentor new brokers, and has been fortunate to work on several corporate headquarters assignments that bring economic stimulus and jobs to the Valley. He’s most proud of Isagenix’s new headquarters in Gilbert and the Benchmark Electronics headquarters in Tempe. Both, he says, are special because they were a team effort within JLL (Andrew loves teamwork).
At JLL, Andrew has completed more than 700 transactions totaling 15.5 million square feet, with a value of $1.6 billion. His work for leading office, industrial and medical clients earned him JLL Top Achiever in 2012 and 2013, and JLL Top Gun (top 5% of the company) in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Andrew is a leader and mentor for younger brokers, and an active community volunteer. Andrew serves on the planning committee for the Phoenix Children’s Hospital charity golf tournament, which supports new hospital programs, essential equipment, cutting-edge research and more. In 2017, he was inducted to the Thunderbirds, who since inception in 1932, have raised more than $122 million in charitable giving through events like the Phoenix Open. Finally, Andrew actively supports the Junior Golf Association of Arizona. He was recently invited to speak to the group about successfully transitioning from golf into the business world.
“We are very proud of Andrew’s achievements,” said JLL Senior Managing Director Pat Williams. “All of us at JLL are honored to have such a great teammate. The drive and passion Andrew has helps our team thrive daily.”
