New CEO’s Strategy for Success: More Collaboration, Less Competition

At the young age of 26, Mark Rose was CEO of the U.S. Real Estate Investment Trust of British Coal Corporation. Since then, he started his own firm, helped merge Jones Lang Wooten into Jones Lang LaSalle (now JLL) and took Grubb & Ellis’s stock from $4 to $14.

Knowing a thing or two about change, Rose recently sat down with Development magazine and shared his strategies to achieving success.

“We all want to be recognized; we all want to go home to our families and feel good about what we do,” he notes. “If you understand that about your people and your clients – that they are trying to maximize the satisfaction of their daily lives – then what you need to do is talk less and listen more.”

For more insight on how he views the path to success, where he sees interest rates and the emergence of millennials taking the economy, and why having his company headquartered in Canada – and not the U.S. – is a good thing, read the full article in the summer issue of Development magazine.
