Jeff Graham to Join Jones Lang LaSalle as Senior Vice President

Former President of Civic San Diego to consult on projects throughout Southwest and Northwest regions

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 27, 2014 – Jones Lang LaSalle today announced that Jeff Graham will join the firm’s Public Institutions Group as a Senior Vice President for the company's Western Division in March. He will be based in San Diego and work on major projects throughout the Southwest and Northwest regions.

"Jeff adds great momentum to our team on the West Coast," said Kevin Wayer, Co-President of the Public Institutions practice at Jones Lang LaSalle. "His expertise further strengthens our ability to capture the growing market opportunities in multiple west coast locations where we continue to dedicate senior level talent to support significant projects."

In his new role, Graham will use his extensive experience in public sector real estate to provide a wide range of consultative services to public entities that leverage the entire spectrum of services provided by JLL.

“Over the past year, JLL’s Public Institutions group has doubled its growth in the West,” said Bob Hunt, Managing Director and West Coast leader of JLL’s Public Institutions practice. “This has been built on several signature wins including advising the University of California Merced on a P3 project to expand its campus by more than 1.5 million square feet.  Jeff’s addition helps us build upon this and enhance the expertise available to our clients.”  

Graham was most recently President of Civic San Diego, a public, nonprofit corporation that plans and implements downtown San Diego's redevelopment on behalf of the city. He brings more than 25 years of real estate experience and is a leading national expert on urban development and public private partnerships.

“Joining Jones Lang LaSalle is an opportunity I could not pass up,” said Graham.  “I'm ready for a different challenge and look forward to consulting with school districts, cities, counties, states and housing authorities on developing public land and revitalizing communities.”
