July 22, 2021

CHICAGO, July 22, 2021JLL Valuation Advisory announced today that it is expanding its new Environmental and Property Condition team, led by Managing Director Jeff Manas, with three key hires – George Bouchie, Ken Voyles and Lisa Dorn.

As part of its ongoing growth strategy, JLL Valuation Advisory announced in April 2021 the addition of the new service line after hiring Manas to head the Environmental and Property Condition (EPC) service team for all property types in U.S. Since then, the team has had tremendous demand in this space, specifically around multi-housing – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac environmental site assessments (ESAs) and property condition assessments (PCAs) – which has supported an accelerated hiring plan as they ramp up to support client needs. 

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Lisa, Ken and George joining JLL’s Environmental and Property Condition team,” Manas said. “Their business principles, pragmatics and expertise are in perfect alignment with our core objective of creating a world-class level of service to our clients. Their prior experiences in the due diligence industry have led organizations to far exceed goals related to quality of service, training of team members, risk management and revenue growth, and, with their support, JLL’s Phase I ESA and PCA service delivery teams are structured for tremendous success!”

Bouchie joins the firm as a Senior Project Management Director with the EPC team, where he will report to Manas and focus on structuring, training and growing the team of PCA specialists. He brings with him 30 years of experience in real estate due diligence studies and related services. He has a B.S. in civil and environmental engineering from Tulane University and is a licensed professional engineer in Illinois, where he is based.

Voyles brings more than 27 years of experience providing high-quality environmental consulting services to his position as a Senior Project Management Director with the EPC team. He will be responsible for growing, training and structuring the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment team. Voyles reports to Manas and will be based in the Carolinas.

As a Project Coordinator for the team, Dorn will work closely with Bouchie, Voyles and Manas in support of the production processes and revenue creation. Reporting to Senior Operations Associate Bryony Kongabel, she has extensive experience supporting environmental and property condition teams and developing relationships with clients, as well as designing process improvements and business optimization solutions. 

The EPC service offers Phase I Environmental Site Assessment and Phase II Oversight Management, along with Property Condition Assessments, Zoning Reports, Seismic Studies, ALTA Surveys and Green Evaluations. Adding this new service line expanded JLL’s capabilities to fulfill the full spectrum of client needs by providing a suite of services through a single source of ordering; faster access to high-quality data for engineering, environmental and valuation products; and a non-disruptive and optimized approach for collection of field data.

Manas anticipates adding more environmental professionals, engineers, architects and other specialists, including Fannie Mae- and Freddie Mac-qualified assessment managers.
