New York, NY [Oct 10 2017] – CleanCapital announced that Matt Eastwick has joined the company to structure and execute capital markets transactions. As Head of Capital Markets, Eastwick will bring an innovative approach to securing the optimal structures and investors for CleanCapital’s various and growing capital needs. Eastwick’s hire comes after a successful Series A equity raise this past summer, as CleanCapital continues to scale operations, while expanding opportunities for clean energy investing.
The renewable energy industry offers a variety of different financial structuring opportunities, and Eastwick, having spent the last eight years focused exclusively on these types of transactions, is bringing his expertise across several areas of fixed income and equity markets to the team. In this new role, Eastwick will also support the CleanCapital team to leverage big data analytics and technology to reduce inefficiencies that still exist for this sector of the market.
“Throughout my career in the capital markets and renewable energy finance, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of exciting and groundbreaking transactions,” stated Eastwick. “CleanCapital’s pioneering mission to innovate in the renewable energy market attracted me to join the company, and I look forward to building out our capital markets leadership.”
“Matt’s breadth of capital markets experience will help CleanCapital grow into a market leader,” said CleanCapital CEO Thomas Byrne. “We are committed to creating innovative financing solutions that reach all segments of the clean energy market, and bringing a seasoned capital markets leader like Matt to the team will accelerate that effort.”
Earlier in his career, Eastwick held various leadership positions at Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, and Merrill Lynch.
