Jill Eicher is the director of the Infrastructure Lab at the Bipartisan Policy Center. Her work focuses on infrastructure financing models for public-sector agencies. Prior to joining BPC, she was a visiting scholar at Stanford University's Global Projects Center in the School of Engineering, working on the development of a cooperative investment model for public pension funds to deploy capital into U.S. infrastructure. That work built on research she did as a co-founder of the Fiduciary Infrastructure Initiative.
Eicher began her career in the investment management industry at Hellman, Jordan Management Co. and later served as a U.S. Treasury Department official for the government's community bank investment program. She is a graduate of Wellesley College, did post-graduate work at the Université de Strasbourg, and was issued a patent for a method to assess investment risk.
