JLL Appoints Eric Forshee to Lead New Life Sciences Practice Group in Raleigh

JLL has launched a dedicated life sciences practice in the firm’s Raleigh, NC office to build upon the firm’s capabilities and demonstrate its continued investment in the sector.

“Raleigh-Durham has emerged as a top market for life sciences developments, and, while we’ve been doing work in the sector for some time, we see the introduction of a solidified business line as a huge growth opportunity for the market,” said JLL’s Travis McCready, head of life sciences, JLL Americas markets.

Over the past two years, Raleigh-Durham delivered a strong amount of lab development and is considered one of the preeminent biomanufacturing hubs in North America.

The newly established focus will be led by EVP Eric Forshee, who will build on the office’s existing life sciences efforts and provide expertise to clients looking to enter or expand in the market. He previously served as a SVP at Colliers, specializing in landlord representation of office and life sciences buildings.
