EQT has named Alex Greenbaum as a partner. Greenbaum is former head of infrastructure of North America at GIC.
EQT is happy to announce that Alex Greenbaum, former Head of Infrastructure – North America at GIC, will join EQT as a Partner, effective March 2022. Alex will lead the new EQT Active Core Infrastructure Advisory Team in North America, based in New York.
Alex spent seven years with GIC’s North American Infrastructure team where he was a member of the global Infrastructure Investment Committee. During his tenure at GIC, Alex led several important investments for GIC and served as a director of ITC Holdings, the largest independent electric transmission company in the U.S., Genesee & Wyoming Railroad, and the Red de Carreteras de Occidente toll road network in Mexico, among others. Alex played a leading role in developing the fund’s strategy for sustainable fuel investments in nascent technologies including carbon capture, biofuels, and hydrogen. Before GIC, he was an investment banker in UBS’ Infrastructure and Transportation group.
“We are very excited to welcome Alex to the team,” said Lennart Blecher, Head of EQT’s Real Assets’ advisory teams. “Alex’s experience makes him an ideal fit for EQT Active Core Infrastructure, a longer-hold fund that applies EQT’s active ownership philosophy to core infrastructure companies that provide essential services to society, and for the firm, as EQT continues its expansion in North America.”
“This is an exciting time to be in the infrastructure space,” said Alex Greenbaum. “The North American market offers a wide range of attractive investment opportunities in core infrastructure assets, and I look forward to exploring these while building the new EQT Active Core Infrastructure strategy together with my colleagues around the world.”
