Real estate advisory firm, JLL, appointed Colin Dowall as the new regional director and head of property and asset management services, MENA.
Dowall’s property and asset management experience spans over 20 years with JLL in Europe, Far East, and the Middle East.
In his new Dubai based role, Dowall will lead the firm’s property management operation services and oversee the development of an international standard property management service to JLL’s MENA clients.
Previously, Dowall was based in China, where he led JLL’s Premium Asset Group, specialising in property management consultancy in tall and supertall mixed-use buildings and developments.
Commenting on his appointment, Dowall said: “Drawing on the experience of our dynamic property & asset management services teams across MENA, I will continue working with the team to build our regional capabilities while focussing on creating an even more sustainable business going forward. We will continue advising on new developments while also tapping into growing opportunities with existing developments, building on the growth achieved under Graham’s strategic leadership.”
Dowall has taken over from Graham Howat, who moved back to the UK, joining JLL’s City of London Property Asset Management team as regional director.
