David Branding, SIOR, executive vice president, leads JLL’s St. Louis industrial real estate and supply chain and logistics platform. With more than 20 million square feet of industrial real estate transactions valued at more than $550 million, David has for a second time earned JLL’s top honors, the Top Gun Award. David and his colleagues from across the Americas were celebrated for their achievements in a recognition ad in today’s issue of the Wall Street Journal. JLL each year honors high achievers for their focus on trust, partnership, and – above all – the success of their clients.
David also recently was inducted into the 2017 Hall of Fame for Midwest Real Estate News for his success as a CRE professional. The acknowledgement recognizes David as “playing a key role in one of the hottest sectors in one of the most important industrial markets”. David also earned the Hall of Fame award in 2015.
David attributes his success to simply working hard every day. “I’ve paid a lot of attention, imitated the best, and worked hard every day,” said Branding.
