MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 13, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has hired Managing Director Scott Loving to specialize in debt and equity advisory transactions in the Twin Cities markets within Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota.

Loving brings more than 17 years of experience in commercial real estate debt and equity transactions. He joins JLL from another leading commercial real estate firm where he sourced, structured and originated more than $2 billion in capitalizations. He is versed in all asset classes, including multi-housing, industrial, office, life sciences, hospitality, retail and tax credit lending.

“JLL’s Capital Markets debt and equity group has a prominent place in the market, and I’m excited to be adding my skill set to a team with a lot of momentum,” Loving said. “The lending environment is constantly changing, and JLL’s team approach, platform of relationships and abundance of real-time transaction data offers significant opportunities for me to add value to clients.”

He joins a JLL Capital Markets team helmed by Senior Managing Directors David Berglund and Colin Ryan, who have grown the office from seven to 25 capital markets specialists and support staff.

“We are always searching for the top talent with cultural fits,” Berglund said. “We will continue to grow JLL’s capital markets group in the Minneapolis-St. Paul markets until we have the top market share in every discipline. It’s been exciting to be a part of growth.”

“Our culture is something we are very protective of, and no one at JLL takes hiring lightly,” Ryan added.  “We knew Scott would be a great fit, and he has been our top recruit prospect since Dave and I came to JLL in September 2020. We are extremely excited to work with him and have him part of the team.”

Loving, who will report to both Berglund and Ryan, earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and received his master’s in business administration from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Business.
