Morrison & Co expands energy team
Asset management firm, H.R.L. Morrison & Co, has announced the appointment of former CEO of Tilt Renewables, Deion Campbell, as Operating Partner to support the firm’s investment activities in the renewable energy sector.
Campbell has more than 25 years of experience in developing and managing renewable energy assets after working in senior roles at Trustpower and Tilt Renewables. He has previously been commended for his relationship management and sustainability initiatives for local communities.
“I’m delighted to welcome one of the region’s foremost renewable experts to our firm,” Paul Newfield, CEO of Morrison & Co, said.
“Renewable energy will continue to be one of the largest global investment opportunities over the coming decades as the world gets to grips with the need for energy transition and decarbonisation.”
“We’re proud of the depth of our sector expertise, which institutional investors regularly cite as a key differentiating factor when deciding to invest with us.”
Campbell said he was looking forward to applying his experience and expertise from his time at Tilt Renewables to Morrison & Co’s global energy and infrastructure portfolio.
“One of the highlights of my working life has been my network of long-term friendships with trusted industry experts. I count the team at Morrison & Co in that group. Their proven track record, together with their entrepreneurial culture, are stand-out qualities within the infrastructure sector.”
The appointment comes after Morrison & Co recorded over AU$5 billion in capital invested by clients into renewable energy assets in the past four years, generating 2.8 gigawatts (GW) of new renewable energy.
Morrison & Co’s listed infrastructure platform, Infratil Ltd, also supported wind-powered generation through investments in Trustpower and Tilt Renewables.
The two companies operated 1,106 megawatts (MW) of wind-generation capacity and recorded an annual output of 3,768 gigawatts/hour (GWh), which was the largest capacity among Australasian wind-generation developers at the time.
