Please describe your role at Yellow Door Energy and expertise in the sector?

As the CFO of Yellow Door Energy, I am responsible for driving the company’s finance strategy, which includes the development, implementation and oversight of control, accounting and reporting policies. This entails optimizing the group’s capital and tax structures, as well as improving the company’s budgeting and financial planning process. In addition, I oversee Yellow Door Energy’s fundraising efforts and investor relations.

While I am relatively new to the renewable energy sector, I am not new to the finance world. In fact, I have over three decades of experience across financial services and the corporate sector. During my career, I have orchestrated over $40 billion in value across various financings and Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) in the U.S., Europe and Asia. I started my career in project finance and now I am back to managing a company heavily focused on project finance.

How did your story in solar begin and your opinion, how much has it changed since then, if at all?

For me, my involvement in what I call “socially conscious” work started about a decade ago in the healthcare sector. A desire to work in the MEA region and remain in a socially conscious sector resulted in my move to Yellow Door earlier this year. That said, while the provision of sustainable energy solutions is a somewhat new sector for me, raising capital, optimizing capital structures and managing the reporting function is a culmination of three decades of experience in this field.
