Jason Lake

Executive Managing Director • United States


Prior to Cushman and Wakefield, Jason Lake has had over 20 years of experience in the credits and incentives industry.

Jason’s clients regularly monetize benefits over market. He achieves this by identifying unique client fact patterns, technical nuance, strategic contingencies, and alternative reporting positions. He applies this approach throughout the incentive life-cycle, from initial opportunity evaluation through reporting, utilization, and audit. As an example, he responded to client tax credit absorption challenges by pioneering in-house tax credit syndication in 2005.

Jason has negotiated on behalf of corporate headquarters, call and service centers, R&D centers, and manufacturing and distribution facilities. In addition, he has extensive experience negotiating and structuring real estate development projects, either stand alone or as part of corporate occupier projects. Industries served include finance and insurance, technology, retail, auto/supplier, pharmaceutical, power, and food, among others.

He was an original member of the Arthur Andersen Credits and Incentives Practice, negotiating and defending credits and incentives for Fortune 100 companies. In 2002, he formed NexGen Advisors, a boutique incentive consulting firm headquartered in Chicago with offices in Nashville and Cleveland. Jason also founded NexGen’s sister firm, NGP Capital, in 2011 to focus on tax credit syndication.
