JLL strengthens infrastructure finance, delivery expertise with strategic hire
Cassia Sookhoo joins JLL’s P3 and Infrastructure Advisory group as vice president
CHICAGO, April 25, 2019 – JLL announced today it has expanded its P3 and Infrastructure Advisory group with the addition of Cassia Sookhoo as vice president. Based in Washington, D.C., Sookhoo will be responsible for advising public authorities and higher education institutions on innovative finance and delivery methods for a broad range of infrastructure sectors.
“Public institutions must leverage new funding, financing and delivery structures to deliver desperately needed infrastructure,” said Jill Jamieson, managing director and lead of JLL’s P3 and Infrastructure Advisory group. “Cassia has devoted her career to strategic partnerships and innovative financing and development. She will be a great asset to our clients.”
Sookhoo began her career in state legislation and tax-exempt finance before turning to public-private partnership advisory work. Prior to joining JLL, she led the Municipal Development Advisory Practice at Brailsford & Dunlavey, where she specialized in alternative finance and delivery, advising public sector clients, universities and quasi-governmental entities across the U.S.
“Public institutions need to get creative to best leverage limited resources as they typically lack reliable funding for infrastructure investments,” Sookhoo said. “Joining JLL gives me the chance to be part of a solution to these complex real-world challenges.”
Sookhoo holds a bachelor’s in political science from the University of Florida and a master’s in urban and regional planning from Florida State University. She serves on the board of directors for Wesley Housing Development Corporation and is a commissioner for the Prince George’s County Enterprise Road Corridor Development Review Commission.
