Ingrid Jacobs was named head of diversity and inclusion at real estate manager Jones Lang LaSalle.
It is a new position, spokeswoman Gayle Kantro said in an email. Ms. Jacobs, who joined JLL on Jan. 20, is responsible for hiring and developing a diverse workforce for the real estate manager.
She was previously chief diversity officer for money manager Eaton Vance and its affiliates, confirmed spokeswoman Robyn Tice. Jessica Kung, chief human resources officer, has taken on the role of interim chief diversity officer following Ms. Jacobs’ departure last week, Ms. Tice said.
Eaton Vance has not initiated a search for a permanent replacement, she said.
Ms. Kantro could not immediately provide further information.
