JLL has appointed industry specialist Brian Adams as a senior vice president in its retail division in Dallas, further expanding its growing food and beverage advisory team.
Adams brings over 25 years of experience advising food and beverage clients. He joins the team led by Naveen Jaggi, president of JLL’s retail advisory services, which includes Emily Durham and Rachael Keener leading efforts in Houston and Austin McWilliams in Austin.
“We have been focused on growing our retail operations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and we’ve recognized that the food and beverage sector presents a great opportunity for us to do just that,” Jaggi said in a statement.
Before joining JLL, Adams served for nearly seven years as a partner at Retail Street Advisors. He also gained experience as senior vice president of hospitality at bigInk Real Estate and Auction Services. During his career, Adams has represented top restaurateurs, including Michelin Star winners and James Beard Foundation Award semi-finalists, plus retailers, hoteliers, and developers.
Adams—a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers and an initiate of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the world’s oldest international gastronomic society—was a founding board member of both the Dallas chapter of the Society of Young Philanthropists and the Helping Friendly Foundation that advocates for a well-read public.
