Jan Pope

JLL has tabbed Rob Kolar as West Division President, Work Dynamics, Americas effective September 1, 2022. Kolar succeeds Jan Pope, who will retire after 32 years at JLL. “I’m honored to succeed Jan. She has been such a big contributor to JLL’s growth, and I feel confident that the path we are on will bring continued value and success to our clients,” said Kolar.

In Jan Pope’s time at JLL, she served as Co-President of Tenant Representation, where she established and grew the San Francisco Bay Area Work Dynamics accounts. She also built the Southwest Market Director role. “I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of JLL’s continued evolution over the years,” said Pope.

Kolar has been with JLL for 18 years, and has held a variety of leadership roles, most recently as GAE. He is based in the Bay Area, and is the executive sponsor for JLL’s Northern California Women’s Business Network.
