LaSalle Investment Management announces Global CEO relocation to Asia

SINGAPORE (26 August 2009) – Today LaSalle Investment Management announced that Jeff Jacobson, CEO
will relocate to LaSalle’s Asia headquarters in Singapore effective 1 January 2010.
Announcing these changes, Jeff commented “Asia is an increasingly important part of our global business, and
represents some of LaSalle’s greatest future growth opportunities both in terms of investment activities and
identifying new sources of capital. We currently have over $3 billion worth of committed equity capital representing
$7 to $10 billion of investment capital for this region. We believe this capital will provide LaSalle and our investors
with unprecedented investment opportunities over the coming years, and we are committed to supporting this
region with our most senior and experienced global investment professionals”.
Jeff's move will allow him to work more closely with the senior management team of LaSalle Asia in executing its
business and investment strategies. Having worked in the U.S. for over 15 years and in Europe for almost a
decade, the move allows Jeff to increase his knowledge of, and involvement with, the third main region in LaSalle's
global business. The existing Asian management team will remain in their current roles and responsibilities.
Jeff will continue to execute his responsibilities in his global role as CEO. With regards to Europe where Jeff has
been located for the past nine years, the teams will continue to be led by LaSalle's European co-heads, Charles
Maudsley and Simon Marrison. Jeff will continue to remain on the European Investment Committees to ensure
continuity in LaSalle's investment governance in the region.
