CHICAGO, Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Jones Lang LaSalle (NYSE: JLL) today
announced it was selected by The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) as an
"External Business Partner of the Year" at P&G's recent annual External

among P&G's 82,000 suppliers to receive the award, recognizing suppliers for
excellence in creating competitive advantage for P&G. JLL also received P&G's
"Excellence Award" for consistent, year-over-year high performance. 

Speaking at the event A.G. Lafley, P&G's Chairman of the Board, President and
Chief Executive Officer, said, "For P&G, the primary drivers of growth and
value creation are innovation and productivity. P&G's external business
partners help us deliver both, creating value for consumers, customers and
shareholders alike." Rick Hughes, Chief Purchasing Officer for P&G, added, "I
