South Africa, 7th July 2011 – Jones Lang LaSalle has appointed Ndibu Motaung to head the research offering for its South Africa office.  Ndibu is an experienced researcher having previously held Research Manager roles at Liberty Properties and Absa Development Company (DevCo) at Absa Bank Limited.

Commenting on Ndibu’s appointment, Mark Bradford, CEO of Jones Lang LaSalle South Africa, said: “Our South African Research Desk  will offer both our local and international clients, independent data and thought leadership on market conditions and trends within a South African and comparative global context. It presents an ideal opportunity to directly market South African cities to occupiers and investors through Jones Lang LaSalle’s global network in 60 countries around the world”. 

Together with vast experience in market and strategy research, Ndibu has considerable understanding of the African market and with specialist sector knowledge and experience in business banking, property (commercial and residential property) and public sector (mainly local government and utilities ), in addition Ndibu has management consulting experience. 

Previously Ndibu was a Senior Project Manager for 3P Consulting (Pty) Ltd and Assistant Economist for Absa Bank and the Africa Desk at Standard Bank.  Ndibu held the positions of Non-Executive Director of Sedibeng Water Board from 2006 to February 2010.  She also served as a member of the HR and Remuneration Committee and a member of the task team that evaluated the business plan and the corporate annual reports and performance amongst other Board responsibilities. 

Commenting about her new role at Jones Lang LaSalle, Ndibu said she is excited to take on the opportunity to represent South Africa, an economic hub and hope for many African countries. I look forward to providing independent research about my country to investors locally and in the rest of the world. I believe that  real estate in South Africa will still yield some great returns as it has previously performed well above global benchmark in the past few years.

Ndibu brings a wealth of knowledge acquired over 14 years of professional service across different industries.
