Real estate services specialist JLL has appointed Simon Peacock as Head of Regions, with responsibility for the firm's 10 regional offices across the UK. Mr Peacock will join the firm's UK executive board and continue to oversee JLL's South West and Wales regions, across offices in Bristol, Exeter and Cardiff.

Simon joined JLL in 2011.

He said: "I have been fortunate enough to work across a number of regions during my time at JLL and look forward to using this experience to help drive change and innovation across the country. Over the next year we will continue to focus on regeneration, sustainability, growing our residential business and continuing to build our key client accounts."

In light of the appointment, former head of regions and the Midlands, Ian Cornock, is taking on a new role and will head the business' regeneration growth initiative. This is an important focus for its UK business as it seeks to advise clients on delivering economic, social and environmental value for towns and cities through new real estate projects. Stuart Smith will take over as lead in the Midlands.

Simon added: "Regeneration and the levelling up agenda will be a key focus area across the regions going forward, so it is great to have someone as experienced as Ian working with us to help us achieve our ambitions in this area."
