Charles Boudet

CEO, France

Charles is responsible for the overall strategy and operations in the French business.

Based in Paris, Charles is back in the country of his birth following an 18-year professional career working in Russia and Germany.

He has experience both inside and outside real estate, and was Supply Chain Director at global food company Danone before joining JLL in Moscow in 2006 as Head of Office and Industrial Agency. He became head of the Russian business three years later.

Charles moved back to Paris to become CEO in 2015, with his wife and four children. Aside from his France responsibilities, he oversees the Logistics & Industrial and Office Agency & Tenant Representation businesses across EMEA – so his earlier career roles come in handy.

Charles’ personal passion for technology is reflected professionally, and he is focussed on reinventing JLL’s services by putting data and technology at the heart of the business. And as senior sponsor for the digital products strategy, he sits on the Board of a proptech partnership JLL co-founded.

At this point in time however, JLL have yet to set-up professional partnerships for his other passions, namely skiing and football.
