He will provide strategic real estate services to tenants and building owners throughout the New York metropolitan area. O’Callaghan will assist in expanding the firm’s activity throughout the Westchester office market, working alongside Robert Ageloff, the head of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Stamford office.
O’Callaghan has more than 25 years of experience in all aspects of commercial real estate, including leasing, sales and brokerage advisory services. He has negotiated many of the largest commercial lease and sales transactions in Westchester and the New York metro area over the past 20 years.
“Chris O’Callaghan has been an industry leader in the Westchester County office market for more than two decades,” said Ageloff. “He has been directly responsible for many of the most significant real estate transactions completed throughout the county. Chris is also deeply invested in the Westchester County business community, and heavily involved in economic development efforts and worthy charitable causes. He was a natural choice to lead Jones Lang LaSalle’s efforts to continue to expand our presence in the market.”
“As a resident and business executive in Westchester County for many years, I have deep roots throughout the area,” said O’Callaghan. “There is such tremendous potential in this market, and I’m particularly excited with the county’s evolution as a new biomed/biotech hub. Jones Lang LaSalle has the broad range of services and the global platform to support our efforts to assist these sectors as they expand and thrive in Westchester County.”
Prior to joining Jones Lang LaSalle, O’Callaghan served as a senior director with Cushman & Wakefield Inc. and was based out of the firm’s White Plains office. Earlier, he was a senior vice president with Albert B. Ashforth Co. in Stamford.
O’Callaghan is the former chairman of the Business Council of Westchester County and the former chairman of the Westchester Economic Development Business Coalition. He serves on the board of trustees of New York United Hospital Medical Center. O’Callaghan is also a member of the Westchester American Red Cross and the Westchester Country Club in Rye.
