GEF Capital Partners


As a Vice President at GEF Capital Partners, I leverage my MBA and mechanical engineering background to lead and support investments in renewable energy and sustainability sectors. I have over four years of experience in sourcing, evaluating, executing, and monitoring deals in oil and gas, geothermal, solar, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, and sustainable investing. My core competencies include financial modeling, due diligence, market research, valuation, and fundraising. I have independently created and presented investment memorandums, term sheets, and pitch materials for potential and existing portfolio companies. I have also pro-actively developed relationships with founders, CEOs, and investment bankers to identify new opportunities and trends. I am passionate about driving positive environmental and social impact through my work.
