JLL bolsters Government and Education practice with established leader in infrastructure finance and sustainability
A proven advisor in the public sector, Josephine Tucker joins JLL to strategically advance the firm’s capabilities
WASHINGTON, Feb. 3, 2022 – JLL today announced the appointment of Josephine Tucker to lead its Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory team in the Americas. As the impact of climate change is continually evidenced, improving infrastructure resiliency is a critical priority for businesses and the public sector alike. Tucker joins at an important inflection point as JLL’s government and education clients seek economic growth that sparks community vitality and productive real estate assets.
From energy and transportation, to environmental and social infrastructure, JLL’s Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory services help clients address aging infrastructure. Tucker’s appointment as Managing Director demonstrates the firm’s commitment to delivering—and sustaining—climate-resilient, energy-efficient infrastructure. Tucker, who most recently served as a national economic and financial advisory leader for Deloitte’s Infrastructure and Capital Projects practice, has more than 15 years of domestic and international infrastructure experience and has spearheaded numerous strategic business initiatives across the transportation, energy, water, and real estate sectors.
“Reliable roads, ports, bridges, student housing, power plants and other infrastructure components are essential for sustaining equitable economic growth,” said Kevin Wayer, President, JLL Government and Education. “Josephine’s robust experience spans the complete infrastructure lifecycle. From planning to delivering assets, she will be a force to clients as they tackle pressing infrastructure challenges and strive towards ambitious sustainability goals.”
With the built environment responsible for nearly 40 percent of carbon emissions globally, public sector leaders are keenly aware of the need to decarbonize their assets and limit global warming. The current decade will be critical in powering essential change that will lay the groundwork for a low-carbon future. JLL has a track record of helping clients foster resilient and fiscally responsible operations, while also reducing environmental impacts.
“From negotiating institutional public-private partnerships to assessing credit risk of clean energy innovators, Josephine’s background as a strategic problem-solver makes her a trusted advisor for clients navigating complex funding structures,” said Chris Roth, COO, JLL Government and Education.
