After completing her Tio bachelor course, Larissa Esser went on to achieve a MBA and currently holds a position as Associate Pan-European Transactions at Jones Lang LaSalle´s Hotels & Hospitality Group (JLL) in London. JLL is a British-American multinational company which offers financial services and is one of the world’s leading companies when it comes to commercial real estate consulting.
Practical and strategic
Larissa feels that her MBA was more strategic, whilst her Tio bachelor course had a more practical orientation. “Tio was a great starting point in my career, allowing me to enter the hospitality industry, and eventually getting me to where I am today. In my opinion practical experience combined with a vision and perseverance make a great formula for success.”
Building an international career
Larissa: “I started my career with JLL as Global Analyst, and was able to switch to capital markets after one year. In my role I am primarily involved in hotel investment sales throughout Continental Europe, including The Netherlands. Examples include the sale of the American Hotel Amsterdam and the Holiday Inn Eindhoven in 2012. JLL has a strong international presence with 44 offices in 20 countries, which makes the company an exciting place to work. I am highly motivated to continue developing myself within Jones Lang LaSalle.”
