Turner Impact Capital added star power to its investment team last year through a partnership with Eva Longoria. Now, the affordable housing, education and healthcare-focused firm is going for a full-court press.

Chris Paul, point guard for the Los Angeles Clippers and one of the NBA’s most famous athletes, was named as an investor and ambassador for the firm.

Paul will “provide insight and help spread awareness of the role that creative, market-driven solutions can play in addressing” America’s housing shortage, Turner, which is headed by Bobby Turner, said in a statement.

Meanwhile, JLL has hired Kristin Grove as vice president of national retail leasing. Grove joins the brokerage from General Growth Properties, where she was the director of leasing. Grove will work with Holly Rome, the director of national retail leasing, at JLL’s Los Angeles office.

Lee & Associates also made a fresh hire: John Berger, former senior vice president with Coldwell Banker Commercial Advisors, will be a founding principal at Lee & Associates’ Pasadena office. His resume includes stints at Morgan Stanley and the UBS Private Client Group.

And Charles Dunn Company joined the ranks of poachers with its hire of Craig Stevens from Madison Partners. Stevens has served on the board of directors for the Burbank Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Corporation of Los Angeles. His son, Clay, will join him at the firm.
