Next Generation Honoree: JLL’s Claire Ross is Wise Beyond Her Years
Claire Ross graduated from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School in 2016, and immediately hit the ground running with JLL. In January 2019, Ross was the youngest female to become a senior associate at the firm.
Ross, 25, is a leader in Atlanta’s CRE community and is an active member of CREW Atlanta, where she is the Programs Committee Co-Chair. Called “wise behind her years” and a “team player” by her colleagues, Claire surely has a bright future ahead of her in the CRE industry.
Primarily focusing on the downtown Atlanta submarket, Ross has executed several large-scale transactions there. She continues to provide Atlanta’s real estate community with knowledge on the area, which has been an overlooked market for years in the city. Ross has proven that the downtown market is ripe with activity and potential.
These are just a few of the reasons we chose Ross to be one of the Atlanta and Southeast region 2019 Next Generation Award Winners. Connect Media’s third annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
