Thirty-year commercial real estate veteran John Jacobs joined Citadel Partners as an advisor within the firm’s office division. Jacobs’ illustrious career in economic development in the Richardson and Garland communities creates a synergy that he will bring with him to Citadel.
“The unwavering honesty and integrity of the Citadel Partners leadership team impressed me,” Jacobs said. “The company’s managing partners, Scott Morse and Scott Jessen, insist on nothing less from their team and that’s the kind of place where I can plant my flag and contribute.”
Jacobs’ vast experience will be instrumental to the growth of the Citadel Partners services platform as he is adept at negotiating local and state incentives, Jessen says. Jacobs possesses tremendous skill at identifying workforce training grants and working with municipal governments on zoning and code matters, he adds.
Jacobs has worked on many high-profile projects including Cisco Systems, Raytheon, and GEICO, among many others. He has worked in corporate solutions advisory services for office building developers and is adept at municipal incentive work within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Jesse notes.
“I have known and worked with John in a variety of capacities over the last 25 years and his skill set is significant,” Jessen says. “He brings a tremendous capacity to our growing services platform for the benefit of our clients.”
“I love having another Dallas native on the team,” Morse says. “Adding John’s capabilities to our platform is an incredible win for Citadel. We anticipate John’s contributions and look forward to what opportunities develop as he helps us expand our firm’s capacities and relationships.”
