EQT accelerates its commitment to sustainability with senior hires

eqt

Decades of future-proofing companies, by ensuring growth and digital transformation, has given EQT a prominent position within the industry. EQT is now strengthening its team with additional sustainability expertise, accelerating sustainability into EQT’s business practice and investments.

EQT is today pleased to announce the appointments of two newly created strategic roles. Bahare Haghshenas joins as Global Head of Sustainable Transformation and Sophie Walker joins as Head of Sustainability for the EQT Private Capital business line. Together with the existing sustainability expertise within EQT, they will drive further integration of purpose and sustainability into the way EQT works, invests and transforms companies.

Bahare will assume the overall responsibility for sustainability and lead the efforts at EQT. She comes most recently from a position as Deloitte Partner and Executive Director of Acacia, Deloitte’s Sustainable Innovation Hub, and will lead the next wave of transformation and business integration of EQT’s purpose across the entire organization. She will join EQT in September and reports to CEO Christian Sinding.

Sophie will work with the teams and portfolio companies across the business lines within Private Capital.

Antin

Antin Infrastructure Partners welcomes Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, Anand Jagannathan and Rodolphe Brumm as new partners, joining existing partner Nicolas Mallet to lead Antin’s new next generation infrastructure initiative. Antin also welcomes David Gilmour and Philippe Sauquet as Senior Advisers.

Antin Infrastructure Partners, one of the world’s leading infrastructure investment firms, hires a dedicated team of senior industry experts who will focus on value-add investing in sustainable, scalable and connected assets in both Europe and North America. The new initiative will also focus on delivering both environmental and societal benefits.

New trends and technologies are rapidly changing the infrastructure landscape, ushering in a new era that is greener, smarter and more connected. Antin’s next generation infrastructure investment initiative will take a multi-disciplinary approach to this large opportunity, focusing on investing in the energy transition, environmental and green mobility, social infrastructure, digital transition and other compelling segments. The next generation team will be located in Antin’s Paris, London and New York offices and work closely with the existing Antin team.

Alain Rauscher, Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Antin Infrastructure Partners, said: “As Europe and North America emerge from the pandemic, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to upscale and build the infrastructure of tomorrow. With innovation and reinvigorated societal priorities accelerating the world to a greener, more sustainable and connected future, we have built a team with unparalleled experience to be in the forefront of these opportunities.”

Mark Crosbie, Managing Partner of Antin Infrastructure Partners, added: “The next generation team’s appointments also add further depth to our strategic insights and thinking across a broad range of infrastructure asset classes. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Antin family. Their combined knowledge and complementary experience will be major assets to enable us to be a key player to invest in the next generation of infrastructure.”

Additional information on Antin’s next generation team can be found below:

Senior Partners

Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet and Anand Jagannathan have joined Antin as Senior Partners to lead the next generation infrastructure initiative.

An engineer by training, Ms. Kosciusko-Morizet spent the first part of her career in the French public sector as a Member of Parliament, Mayor, and Cabinet Minister.

David Gilmour, former Vice President of Business Development at BP, helped create new strategies highlighting the importance of technology and venturing, creating a leading Corporate Venturing Capital arm for BP, enabling the transition to a lower-carbon economy. In his 20-year career with BP, he successfully led the Global Marine lubricants business and was CEO of Air BP. While Dr. Gilmour fully retired from BP in June 2020, he remained a Non-Executive Director of several of the start-ups in which BP invested including, artificial intelligence and machine learning for transportation and wind digital optimisation business. He has recently resigned from these roles and has been appointed Executive Chair of StoreDot, an ultra-fast charging battery company.

Philippe Sauquet brings extensive knowledge of the renewable energies and power sector to Antin, acquired over a 30-year career at Total where he played a key role in the company’s repositioning as a responsible energy major.
