Jones Lang LaSalle

Eric Hirsch is Executive Director for Jones Lang LaSalle, a Fortune 500 professional commercial property services company with more than 14,000 employees in 14 offices across China.  Based in Beijing, Eric leads business strategy and development for the Beijing office market, driving international best practices for the firm which he also serves as a member of the Regional Tenant Representation Board.  After more than a decade in the capital, Eric is widely regarded as a leading expert in the field and is frequently sought by industry leaders and the media to comment on the latest market movements and trends.  As an industry leader, he continues to be instrumental in building up the firm’s growth in Beijing and throughout China.

An advocate of peer-to-peer learning, Eric is a strong believer is giving back to the business community and taking an active role in AmCham China is a key way to achieve this.  His involvement with AmCham China spans his lengthy and distinguished career in Beijing, where he has led several pioneering initiatives such as the founding of the Real Estate Forum, which he continues to chair.  His views have appeared in numerous industry publications, including Business Now, and he is regularly called upon to moderate and speak at various events, including AmCham China functions.  Strongly committed to further AmCham China’s visibility, Eric engages colleagues to be actively involved in forums and committees, such as the Young Professional Committee.  He is also active with a number of non-profit organizations and sits on the board of a Beijing-based charity.

Moving forward, if elected, he will work to continue encouraging more involvement from members in order for AmCham China to continue being the voice of the American business community, especially those from SME’s and our other chapters in China.
