Veteran New York City retail broker Richard B. Hodos has joined JLL as vice chairman, retail brokerage, based in the firm’s Manhattan headquarters office. He will be joined by longtime associate Michael Remer, who will serve as VP, retail brokerage.
The two join JLL from CBRE, where Hodos was ranked the No. 1 retail broker in the Americas for two consecutive years, and bring nearly four decades of combined experience providing full-service consulting to global brands, national retailers and prominent landlords.

Prior to CBRE, Hodos was president and co-founder of Madison HGCD, where he worked with some of the world’s most prominent retail brands.
