Motorola has picked Chicago-based Jones Lang LaSalle to manage 12.5 million sq. ft. of the communication giant’s U.S. facilities. The five-year agreement is effective from March 1.

Jones Lang LaSalle has agreed to generate significant savings for Motorola while improving service delivery within Motorola’s real estate portfolio. "Our primary objective is to leverage our economies of scale, purchasing power and new technology for the benefit of Motorola," says Tod Lickerman, president of corporate property services for Jones Lang LaSalle.

To achieve these objectives, Jones Lang LaSalle will implement a business planning process for Motorola, as well as develop key performance indicators, Lickerman says.
