Jeremy Sheldon

Head of Markets, Asia Pacific

Jeremy oversees transactions and office leasing across Asia Pacific.

With his leadership team, Jeremy sets the vision and strategy for JLL Markets throughout the region, with a focus on how to innovate to meet clients’ needs with new technologies.

Jeremy’s career in commercial real estate spans three decades. After attending Marlborough College and earning a Bachelor of Science (Hons) from the University of Westminster, he joined DTZ in 1986.

In 1990, he uprooted and made the leap Hong Kong to establish JLL’s tenant representation business. He quickly expanded his role to the spearhead firm’s Asia tenant representation business. In 2003 he honed his focus on creating cohesion between local and regional service lines across Asia including greater connectivity in China, Japan, Singapore, India, Australia and the Philippines.

With his deep knowledge of Asia’s emerging and established markets, he relocated to New York in 2006 to support U.S. clients seeking to export their business to Asia Pacific, and vice versa. But his home was Hong Kong, and he returned in 2009 to run the firm’s transaction business across the region, where he doubled revenue in just six years.

In his spare time, Jeremy and his wife Alex, 3 children and 2 dogs can be found wandering the hills of HK, out on the water or he is subjecting family and friends to his cooking.
