Before that, he worked on the commercial product side of cybersecurity with Symantec and iSight Partners, which was acquired by FireEye in 2016.

“JLL is the leader in commercial real estate because of its strategic focus on technology,” said Silva. “I am thrilled to join its world-class security team and drive security innovation that supports JLL’s mission to shape the future of real estate for a better world.”

Silva spent his early career in a variety of security roles in the U.S. military and federal government with a significant focus on addressing cyber threats to critical infrastructure.
