WASHINGTON, March 30, 2023 – JLL announced today that it has hired Doug Mackenzie as Vice President, Energy Resilience, for its Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory team.

At JLL, Mackenzie will create and lead an energy resilience business that supports the development and implementation of distributed energy and microgrid solutions that achieve climate goals for public sector and commercial clients.
