DALLAS, Feb. 28, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has welcomed Senior Managing Director Angela Kelcher to lead the national affordable housing debt production team.

Kelcher sits in the Dallas office and reports to Gerard Sansosti, Executive Managing Director and Debt and Loan Sales Platform Leader.
