Minneapolis, MN – North Sky Capital is pleased to announce that Andrew Harris has joined the firm as a Principal. “We are excited to welcome Andrew to our business development team,” said Scott Barrington, Chief Executive Officer. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in private markets fundraising and will further accelerate the growth of our series of impact funds.”

North Sky manages two private investment strategies: (1) greenfield clean energy infrastructure (the Alliance funds) and (2) impact secondaries, whereby the firm acquires limited partnership interests in impact/ESG funds, often at a significantly discounted purchase price (the Clean Growth funds). North Sky is one of the most experienced impact investing firms in the United States, based on the six impact funds it manages and its early entry into private markets impact investing in 2005.
Andrew has a long-standing commitment to environmental and social matters, which includes professional work on clean energy and healthy living & aging funds, as well as his personal work with the Resolution Project, which develops socially responsible young leaders and empowers them to make a positive impact across the globe. “He understands that the attractive returns profiles of our funds offer a terrific opportunity to expand the appeal of impact investing to all investors, big and small. He is going to be a tremendous asset to the firm,” said Danny Zouber, Managing Director.
