Firm: Fitch Ratings
Jeffrey Lack has established himself as leading credit analyst for the transportation sector during his nearly 10-year run at Fitch Ratings. He was formerly the senior transportation analyst in Fitch's Chicago office and in 2019 moved to the rating agency’s Austin, Texas, office to grow the company’s global infrastructure coverage.
Jeffrey has taken an elevated role in Fitch’s airport sector during the last five years as lead analyst on a number of high-profile hub airports throughout the U.S. including Atlanta, Houston, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and San Francisco. He has also covered a wide array of other innovative large transportation project financings such as the Purple Line Light Rail Project in Maryland, an automated people mover at Los Angeles International Airport and New York City’s Moynihan Station redevelopment project.
“Jeff brings a unique blend of knowledge and experience working as an infrastructure analyst responsible for analyzing a variety of complicated project financings and traditional municipal transportation credits,” says Chad Lewis, a senior director and team leader in Fitch’s Global Infrastructure and Project Finance Group.
Outside of public finance, Jeffrey has a long devotion to ice hockey having played the sport growing up and attended New York Ranger games at Madison Square Garden with his late father. He played on the club hockey team while attending college at Washington University in St. Louis.
