Inside Lloyd


Lloyd Companies proudly congratulates Jake Quasney, a member of this year’s 40 Under 40 list from Prairie Business Magazine.

Quasney joined Lloyd Companies in 2015 and has quickly become an integral part of our team.

Hired as general counsel, he now additionally serves as vice president of real estate and investments. Jake works closely with all our divisions to identify and mitigate potential risks to the company, as well as with capital partners and investors to structure equity on projects.

Since 2015, Jake has assisted in developing more than 1,000 apartment homes across South Dakota and Iowa, including over 200 affordable housing units in the state of South Dakota. He also serves the Sioux Empire United Way assisting with its allocation process.

“Jake is a key part of our senior leadership team and well-deserving of this recognition,” Lloyd CEO Chris Thorkelson said. “He tackles complex real estate and development projects with a blend of legal and accounting expertise combined with creativity. He’s constantly striving to bring positive change to communities, and we’re fortunate to have him helping us deliver on our mission of providing a better quality of life.”

Prairie Business magazine names the top 40 business professionals under the age of 40 annually in the northern Plains. It selects inspiring and dedicated professionals from a wide range of industries who have made significant impacts in their professions, industries and communities. They are entrepreneurs, industry experts, executives and nonprofit leaders, business owners, government officers, environmental advocates and regional trendsetters. Plus, they show unusual devotion to their communities and to volunteer service.

“The region’s economy is strong, and that’s really giving young people an opportunity to shine,” said Tom Dennis, editor of Prairie Business.

“And not only are these high achievers standouts in their work, but also they show exceptional devotion to their families and communities. The work-life balance they’ve achieved is impressive — and in my view, that makes their individual success stories all the more inspiring.”

The selected 40 are featured in the December issue, which is available here. The feature begins on Page 24.

Lloyd Companies congratulates all those honored and the organizations they serve!
