Tony Ryan to Join JLL

Tony Ryan, an industry specialist with 30 years’ experience providing commercial and legal services to the hotel and hospitality industry in Asia Pacific, is joining JLL.

In a newly created role, Tony will be the global head of Mergers & Acquisitions for the firm’s Hotels & Hospitality Group.

He will report to Mark Wynne Smith, Global CEO, JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group and be based in Singapore.

Starting in December 2015, Tony will provide hospitality industry clients with strategic advice on growing their local and international businesses through corporate and portfolio acquisitions, capital sourcing, joint ventures, business restructuring and cross border transactions.

Scott Hetherington, CEO Asia, JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group, said, “We are delighted to be bringing Tony into the business. He will be a huge asset to JLL as he has a skill set that is complementary to our current team in Asia Pacific. With him on board, we expect to grow the M&A part of our business to meet the demands of our current clients and of the market in general.”

Over the years, Tony has been involved in a number of significant hotel deals in the region, handling transactions for companies such as IHG, Hyatt, CDL Hospitality REIT and Host Hotels & Resorts, one of the largest lodging Real Estate Investment Trusts in the USA.

From 2004 to 2015, Tony ran his own hospitality-focused legal firm in Sydney and Singapore, Ryan Lawyers. Prior to that, he was a partner at Blake Dawson (now known as Ashurst) where he established Australia’s first integrated tourism and hospitality legal practice.
