Lori Boyer

Chief Executive Officer
Phone: (904) 255-5301
Address: 117 W. Duval St. #310 Jacksonville, FL 32202
Lori Boyer is the DIA's Chief Executive Officer.  She began this role in July of 2019 following a career as an attorney, business owner and City Council member. 

A graduate of Georgetown University and University of Florida Law, she established a successful legal career representing such clients as Arvida and Barnett Bank. Her legal practice concentrated in areas of land use and environmental permitting, including substantial practice in Development of Regional Impact approvals, as well as general real estate finance, leasing, and transactions. In 1985, Lori became a principal in several real estate investment and property management companies with property holdings across the eastern U.S.  In 2011, she entered public service and was elected twice to Jacksonville City Council serving as Council President in 2017.

Her passions on City Council were transformation of our extraordinary water assets into experiences that enhance quality of life and tourism, revitalizing Downtown, improving bicycle and pedestrian safety, and addressing the impacts of flooding and sea level rise all while guarding the financial stability of the City. Now at DIA, she is focusing on the residential-first strategy combined with waterfront activation, enhanced streetscapes and two-way street conversion in order to facilitate strong restaurant and retail corridors as well as neighborhood centers that energize the sidewalks and build communities within Downtown.

Married to Circuit Judge Tyrie Boyer, Ms. Boyer enjoys travel, cooking, and the outdoors.
