Energy Infrastructure Partners announces senior hires to further strengthen market position
Zurich, December 16, 2020 – Energy Infrastructure Partners AG (EIP) is pleased to announce a number of new key hires. They include Beat Goetz, Head Global Investor Solutions, Corinna Guenther, Head Risk Management, Anna Sexton, Head Market Positioning and Caterina Mattle, Head Public & Regulatory Affairs.
“Further strengthening our team with these senior specialists will pave the way for us to achieve our goals and growth potential in the coming years, especially as we face the challenges of energy transition and building a decarbonized future,” commented Dominik Bollier, founding managing partner of EIP.
“The decades of experience brought by the strengthened management team will bolster the realization of EIP’s global trajectory and ensure that we are well-positioned when it comes to proactively tackling the shifting regulatory landscape, expanding our client base, and making our investors’ assets tangible – from wind farms in the Nordics to hydropower plants here in Switzerland,” agreed Roland Dörig, founding managing partner of EIP.
The timing of the announcement falls in line with EIP’s transformation: the company recently announced that going forward, it will operate as an independent collective asset manager after it was granted a license from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).
Beat Goetz, Head Global Investor Solutions, joins EIP after successfully leading the Swiss Institutional Client Coverage Team at UBS Asset Management in Switzerland and out of Singapore for the Asia Pacific Region. Goetz has more than 25 years of experience in Asset Management with a focus on institutional clients. He has played a key role in developing solutions for institutional investors to benefit from the transition in the Swiss energy market as demand for energy infrastructure investments, particularly from institutional investors, continues to grow. His strength lies in designing tailor-made client solutions.
Corinna Guenther, Head Risk Management, has gathered over two decades’ experience in the financial industry. She began her career with key roles in corporate lending and project management for strategic investments. With a number of Managing Director roles in Germany and Switzerland under her belt, Guenther was most recently Managing Director at Flossbach von Storch AG in Zurich, where she oversaw risk management and compliance.
Dr. Anna Sexton, Head Market Positioning, brings more than 15 years of experience promoting and supporting sales priorities in key markets, as well as in crisis management and transaction situations. Before joining Energy Infrastructure Partners, she was Head of Media Relations for the International Wealth Management division at Credit Suisse, actively contributing to its positioning and economic success. Previously, she was Head of Public & Media Relations at Partners Group.
Caterina Mattle, Head Public & Regulatory Affairs, represented Swiss cantonal interests in energy politics for six years as Secretary General of the Swiss Conference of the Cantonal Ministers of Energy (EnDK), where she gained an in-depth understanding of the political processes and stakeholders in energy politics. Previously, she worked in the CEO headquarters of the Nord Stream I Pipeline Project, and prior to that at The Advisory House, consulting one of Switzerland’s major energy companies on the establishment of their regulatory framework.
