JLL has hired the team of Al Gutierrez as managing director, Ian Ceppos as EVP and Stephanie Coleman as VP to help the firm expand its tenant representation and agency leasing services in Westchester and Fairfield counties. With a combined 57 years experience in the market, they will report to Drew Saunders (pictured), broker lead for JLL in Westchester and Fairfield counties.

“Together, Al Gutierrez, Ian Ceppos and Stephanie Coleman bring a tremendous amount of local market expertise and industry knowledge, particularly in the areas of agency leasing, medical office buildings and investment sales,” said Saunders. “They also bring a welcomed energy and excitement to this market.”
