Hal Kempson has been hired at the Charlotte office of real estate firm JLL, where he’ll be an executive vice president, the company said Monday.

Kempson was most recently first vice president at rival firm CBRE. In a news release, JLL noted only that he “joins the company from a leading global commercial real estate firm.”

Kempson will be based in Charlotte with a focus on debt and equity across multiple asset classes. He’ll report to Chase Monroe, JLL’s market director for the Carolinas.

“Hal’s depth of experience is an excellent addition to our expanding Carolinas platform,” said Monroe. “We continue to grow our services in the Carolinas to meet our clients’ expanding needs.”

Said Kempson: “I look forward to contributing to the already robust JLL platform and to continuing to provide my clients with industry-leading financial services.”
