Robert Kline
PHOENIX, AZ, Dec. 13, 2016 – In an effort to strengthen its already broad suite of finance and investment capabilities, JLL today announced the addition of two market experts in the firm’s Capital Markets group.

Industry veteran Robert Kline has joined JLL’s Capital Markets, Finance unit as a Managing Director in the Phoenix office. Dan Postal has joined the firm as a Senior Vice President.

Kline will focus his efforts on a broad range of services including debt and equity, CMBS loans and foreign capital, partnering with Senior Managing Director Dennis Desmond and Executive Managing Directors Tom Fish, Tom Melody and Mike Melody.

Postal has teamed up with Senior Vice President Brian Ackerman to focus on investment sales and owner/user acquisitions and dispositions.

“We continue to build the Finance group within our Capital Markets platform,” said Fish. “We are excited to welcome Robert to JLL, as he helps to round out an experienced and professional team in the Southwest. He fills a vital role for us in Phoenix and brings a successful national finance practice to our firm.”
