Jennifer Wilkins serves as a Director, Financial & Professional Services Sector Lead at CBRE. In this role, she supports the account teams by providing guidance on best practices, planning tools and industry resources. In addition, Jennifer focuses on expanding the OM offerings with existing and new clients as well as recruiting when needed. It is her goal to build strong links between the OM accounts and OM platform to increase knowledge share and gain efficiencies. Jennifer feels that world class OM products are born from streamlined processes and built relationships and is excited to be involved in both.

Previously Jennifer was a manager on an account within the Occupancy Planning (OP) practice at JLL. In her time there she functioned as an Occupancy Planner, Senior Planner, & Regional Lead. Her most recent responsibilities included: supervising two regional Occupancy Planning teams, overseeing all regional planning efforts to support the client’s Enterprise Portfolio Optimization, and highlighting opportunities to enhance data quality, planning efficiency, and workflows between the planning and implementation teams. Jennifer understood that the future of work, while exciting and engaging, can at times be met with hesitation and her diplomatic problem solving skills supported implementation of new space standards and guidelines. In addition to her planning acumen, Jennifer thrived on process improvement and business support projects that aided in further elevating the on-account OP team.

Jennifer started out in Occupancy Planning with NELSON where she worked in Bank of America's Corporate Workplace division for 6 years. While there she partnered with multiple lines of business in Charlotte and St. Louis to assess their real estate needs, solve for long term headcount projections, assist in restack initiatives, and work on an overall metro strategy.

Jennifer’s keen organizational skills and willingness to collaborate in an effective and inclusive manner have been integral in the success of her teams and clients’ projects. Her professional career began at Alfred Williams, a Herman Miller dealership, in 2005 as the lead designer for Atrium Health.
