Recently, ABM implemented team-cleaning changes across this client's portfolio, leading to more than $224,000 in annualized cost savings.

Said Chris Hughes, Executive Vice President, ABM Onsite Services: "It is truly an honor to be recognized with this tremendous award. ABM strives to meet the unique needs of each of our clients, and we believe this award speaks to that commitment. As a collaborative partner alongside JLL, we've worked hard to tailor our service offerings to fit the culture in which we're operating, and we're pleased to see that work leading to first-class services and cost savings for the client."

Recipients were selected from a pool of hundreds of supplier partners through a comprehensive evaluation process by Jones Lang LaSalle's Global Strategic Sourcing Board. All participants support corporate solutions or project and development services functions across multiple regions for Jones Lang LaSalle corporate clients.

"Our service platform is based on our ability to recognize and build strong relationships with vendors at the top of their professions," said Marc Campbell, Senior Vice President of Strategic Sourcing at Jones Lang LaSalle.
