JLL Australia CEO retires – MHD

On 25 January it was announced that Stephen Conry, CEO of JLL Australia & New Zealand, would retire from the firm after 40 years, including 13 years as CEO.

“I thought it the right time, on the anniversary today of 40 years with the firm, to announce my intention to retire from JLL in coming months after the transition to a new CEO,” Stephen said.

“The Australian business is positioned well, after a very successful 2021, and with an impressive national leadership team whose commitment, energy and collaboration is inspirational.

“It has been a very fulfilling career journey – full of challenges, opportunities and great people. Property is an industry that I have been passionate about since 1982 when I started at JLL as a trainee property valuer,” he said.

In 2019, Stephen was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM), in recognition of his service to the commercial property sector. Over the last two years Stephen also helped navigate the property industry through the challenges of the COVID-19 environment in his role as National President of the Property Council of Australia from 2019-2021.

Anthony Couse, Asia Pacific CEO, JLL, was effusive in his praise for Stephen’s work.

“I congratulate Stephen on reaching this significant milestone of 40 years at JLL,” Anthony said. “During his tenure as CEO, Stephen has helped make our Australia business what it is today: the largest commercial property services firm in the country, with a talented and committed workforce and an impressive cohort of leaders. His focus on clients, and strategic investments in people and technology, have delivered impressive growth, setting us up for continued success.”

“While I will be sad to see Stephen leave the firm, I am grateful for the immense contribution he’s made to JLL over the years. I look forward to working with him and the Australia leadership team to ensure a smooth transition to a new CEO. We have a great depth of talent, and the business has strong momentum coming out of 2021 to continue delivering impressive growth.”

Conry’s successor has not yet been named. JLL will undertake a thorough process in the coming weeks before appointing a new CEO.

Conry joined the firm in 1982 as a trainee, working his way up to Director in 1989. He was appointed Managing Director for Queensland in 1996 and has served in various national business leadership roles before being named Australia CEO and joining JLL’s Asia Pacific Executive Board in 2009. He added New Zealand to his responsibilities in 2018.

Beyond his role at JLL, Conry has served on various business and community boards, including the Property Council of Australia since 2014, and as the National President from 2019 to 2021. He is a Fellow of the Australian Property Institute; a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors; and a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
