Jennifer Hara joins JLL to help public- and private-sector clients finance infrastructure projects


WASHINGTON, D.C. – JLL announced today that it has hired Jennifer Hara as a Vice President for its Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory team. In this role, she will play a key part in expanding JLL’s public-private partnership (P3) business and managing transportation and energy engagements. 

Hara brings with her more than 15 years of experience with project development and financing and has extensive knowledge of working with various sources of financing for large-scale, capital-intensive projects such as export credit agencies, multilateral agencies and commercial banks. Prior to joining JLL, Hara was a brand director with Access Intelligence and Director of P3 Services at the Institute for Public-Private Partnerships, a Tetra Tech Company. She also spent the beginning of her career at Taylor-DeJongh, a boutique international project finance advisory firm. 

“Jennifer’s commitment to the advancement of public-private partnerships and all categories of U.S. infrastructure has been unwavering over her career,” said Managing Director Josephine Tucker, Head of Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory, JLL. “We are ecstatic to bring her onto the clean energy and infrastructure advisory team, where she will undoubtedly make an extraordinary impact for the company and our clients.”

JLL’s Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory service works with clients to address aging infrastructure at a pivotal time when improving infrastructure resiliency is a priority for both private and public sectors. JLL’s global Decarbonizing Cities and Real Estate report recognized that governments will need to push harder and with real urgency, but how to fund this energy transition is a challenge.

“Jennifer’s knowledge of P3s and experience with innovative financing programs strengthens our capabilities to best serve our clients,” said Kevin Wayer, president, JLL Government and Education. “JLL continues to be a leader in clean energy and infrastructure advisory.”
