JLL announced today that it has hired Kristy David as a Senior Vice President for its Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory team. In this capacity, she will play a key role in advising public and private clients on achieving their clean energy sustainability goals with an emphasis on solar, wind, EV charging and energy storage.
David brings with her a wealth of experience, including more than 15 years in project finance, commercial due diligence, and public-private partnerships. Prior to joining JLL, she was a vice president with Greengate LLC, where she advised on complex multi-source financings and performed financial, market, credit and probabilistic analysis, among other duties.
“Kristy will strengthen the depth of JLL’s financial advisory capabilities in the renewable and clean energy, infrastructure, advanced fossil and industrial sectors, where she has worked to close multi-billion-dollar projects domestically and internationally,” said Managing Director Josephine Tucker, Head of Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory, JLL. “We are thrilled to welcome her onto the Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory team.”
David, who is based in JLL’s Washington, D.C. office, earned her BA in economics from New York University and her master’s degree in international finance and international energy policy from Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).
JLL’s recently released Decarbonizing Cities and Real Estate: The U.S. Landscape from a Global Perspective report discussed how a growing number of local governments have set bold net zero carbon targets and that cities and municipalities must assess how to change the way they build, operate, generate power, engage with businesses and communities and much more to achieve the necessary reductions in emissions. JLL’s Clean Energy and Infrastructure Advisory team works with clients to address aging infrastructure at a pivotal time when improving infrastructure resiliency is a priority for both private and public sectors.
“Kristy has advised on some of the largest and most complex project financings, demonstrating a knowledge of the challenges lenders and borrowers often face,” said Kevin Wayer, president, Government and Education JLL. “We look forward to her contributions in continuing to make JLL a recognized leader in clean energy and infrastructure advisory.”
