Arthur de Haast, head of Jones Lang LaSalle’s international capital group, has added running EMEA corporate finance to his portfolio of roles after previous head, Andreas Quint, resigned.
De Haast is stepping in “as a safe pair of hands” following Quint’s surprise departure after only a year in the role of chief executive of JLL Corporate Finance, according to one JLL source. De Haast also chairs JLL’s hotels and hospitality group.
Quint was moved from German head to the corporate finance role last January by JLL’s EMEA chief executive Christian Ulbrich, with a brief to treble the fee income. Ulbrich brought in former Eurohypo banker Frank Porschke as German head at the same time.
Gregor Büchner remains chief operating officer for EMEA corporate finance.
