Mark has been involved in structured finance and investment in energy and infrastructure projects for more than 25 years. He started his career as a lawyer in Australia and was a structured finance partner at a major Australian firm before switching to investment banking in 1997. As an investment banker he has focussed on energy and infrastructure assets in Australia and in Europe. He was head of ABN AMRO’s European Infrastructure Capital business before joining Macquarie Capital in 2005, where he has been involved in transactions in sectors including offshore wind, solar, biomass and transmission, as well as the acquisition of the Green Investment Bank in 2017.

Over his career Mark has worked on pioneering transactions in transport and social infrastructure, telecommunications infrastructure and, over the last decade in particular, renewable energy and transmission.  Mark is a Board Member of Green Investment Group.

Chris joined Macquarie in 2007 working across advisory and investment in PPP, renewable energy projects and infrastructure M&A as part of Macquarie Capital’s London-based infrastructure team.

Following 10 years in the London office Chris moved to New York in 2018 to launch the Green Investment Group in the Americas. The team invested into and built platforms in solar and distributed energy, developing more than 15 GW of projects. Chris is now based in Paris and focused on global energy transition investments.

Based in San Francisco, Greg focuses on corporate and project level investments across a wide range of energy solutions, including battery storage, microgrids, electric vehicles, distributed energy, and consumer energy.

Greg joined Green Investment Group in 2019 from Tesla, where he was Global Director of Business Development and Market Entry for Energy Products.  Greg developed commercial approaches that grew the US business that now includes a 52 MWh PV-paired battery on Kauai that enables dispatchable solar and an 80 MWh standalone battery that provides peaking capacity in Southern California. Greg also established Tesla's energy storage businesses in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, and was involved in the landmark 129 MWh system in South Australia.

Edward has been involved in the global renewable energy industry for over 25 years and during that time has developed and financed more than 100 renewable energy projects and businesses globally across a broad range of renewable fuels and technologies. In his early career Edward acted as a legal adviser to public and private organisations engaged in the power sector, before working in industry in various project and corporate development and fundraising roles.

He transferred to Macquarie Capital in 2017 to take on the role of Chief Operating Officer for Macquarie Capital in Europe and global Co-COO for Macquarie Capital’s Infrastructure and Energy Group. The rapid growth and globalisation of the Green Investment Group led him to focus increasingly on Green Investment Group’s renewable investment activity, and in 2019 he took on the role of Chief Operating Officer for Green Investment Group.

Prior to joining Macquarie, Philipp was a Principal at strategy consultancy Bain & Company, where he was part of the Financial Services and Private Equity practices. He holds an MBA from INSEAD and a Master’s in Law from the University of St.Gallen in Switzerland.
