Instant Hires Chicago-Based Brady as Americas CEO

Flexible space provider Instant has named CRE veteran Joe Brady as Americas CEO, effective Dec. 2. Brady will lead Americas operations from Instant’s new Chicago office, which he’ll open.

Brady has run his own consultancy and held several senior roles at JLL. Most recently, he was divisional VP for real estate at Walgreen Company, overseeing a 150-million-square-foot portfolio.

“The real estate market is changing—client solutions are becoming more complex and business requirements have evolved; the increase in flexible workspace is at the heart of this profound change,” said Brady.

He continued, “Instant has the progressive, client-centric approach that real estate teams now need. It is a company that has grown dynamically, has a fantastic team in place and has the potential to make very significant strides in the Americas.”

Instant’s sales offices in Dallas, San Francisco and New York have doubled in size over the past two years.

Connect Chicago Fall 2019 will take place Oct. 29 in Chicago. For more information, or to register, click here.
