Hanson, whose specialist area is machinery and business assets, will now focus wholly on growing this sector of the business within JLL.
Smith has been with JLL, and formerly King Sturge which the company merged with, for six years.
"We have a great team of people in Nottingham who are advising on some of the region's most prominent projects," he said.
"I am looking forward to building on our current successes, as well as working with the teams to grow our market share and influence in the region going forward."
Ian Cornock, JLL lead director for the Midlands, added: "Mike Hanson has made a significant contribution to the success of the Nottingham office during its years as King Sturge before the merger and more recently with Jones Lang LaSalle.
"His new role opens up exciting opportunities for himself and Mat Smith."
The Nottingham office of JLL is based in Park Row and is one of 34 offices across the UK, employing 2,700 staff.
