Energize is excited to announce a new addition to our growing team. Vishnu Amble has joined in a new role as Head of Investor Relations & Capital Markets.
With two decades of experience managing capital market activities at the intersection of infrastructure, energy, technology, and sustainability, Vishnu brings a wealth of industry knowledge and an institutional investor mindset to our team. In his role as Head of IR and Capital Markets, Vishnu will work directly with Energize LPs and institutional capital markets players to help our portfolio and ecosystem gain access to a broad range of capital partners. His robust network of leading institutional and strategic investors will prove to be a valuable asset to Energize’s portfolio of fast-growing software companies in need of capital as they scale to meet the demands of the rapidly digitizing energy and sustainability industries.
“I am excited to bring my global institutional capital markets access and understanding to Energize and the software companies they back, which are changing the game in the sustainability transition,” said Vishnu. “I am well-aligned with Energize’s view of the value in software enabling the digitization of energy and infrastructure, and as a member of the team I look forward to collaborating with capital providers, entrepreneurs and industry leaders driving this transformation.”
Vishnu joins us from Saudi Aramco, where he was a Senior Investment Director leading global capital partnerships and investments across the company’s financial and strategic objectives. While at Aramco, he managed partnerships with leading sovereign wealth funds, institutional asset managers, pension funds, insurance companies and endowments across the globe. His role also included building one of the world’s largest limited partnership programs in infrastructure, software private equity, and venture capital funds to drive Aramco’s growth and insights into the themes of industry digitalization, decarbonization, diversification and decentralization. Throughout his career, Vishnu has conducted due diligence and managed investments across many of Energize’s investment themes, including core infrastructure, renewable energy, mobility, climatetech, software, supply chains, cybersecurity, and more.
Prior to Aramco, Vishnu held roles at a variety of global investment firms, including Lehman Brothers and The Carlyle Group. He also lead global capital partnerships and investment programs for European energy major E.ON, as the company undertook mass digitization, decarbonization and decentralization amidst the energy transition. The bulk of his career has been focused on facilitating the flow of capital into this industry transformation, which has entailed working with the full spectrum of capital markets providers – from the public markets to sovereign wealth funds. These positions took Vishnu from his hometown of Chicago to New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Germany, Saudi Arabia and beyond. Vishnu is a proud graduate of the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor.
Equipped with an expansive network of leading investors and a global understanding of the energy, technology and sustainability markets, Vishnu is excited to return to his Midwestern roots to join the Energize team here at our HQ in Chicago and root on his Cubs from Wrigley Field.
Join us in giving Vishnu a warm welcome!
