Blackfinch makes triple hire in UK renewable energy team

Blackfinch Energy, part of Blackfinch Group and a leading investor into UK renewable energy, has made three new hires in its national team, with Alan Gorman, Vuong Nguyen, and Sam Dickerson joining as Investment Director, Investment Manager and Senior Commercial Portfolio Manager, respectively.

The move follows an announcement last month that the firm had expanded its UK-based renewable energy portfolio with its first subsidy free wind farm in Scotland achieving commercial operation, and that it had increased its total annual renewable energy capacity from 104 Gigawatt hours (GWh) to c. 118 GWh.

Bringing more than 20 years’ experience and an extensive background in project finance and infrastructure investment, Alan Gorman previously spent five years with John Laing’s renewable energy and infrastructure team. More recently he has been consulting on the launch of Clean Energy Capital – which was targeting advisory and investment mandates in the UK and European renewable energy sector.
Nguyen has five years’ worth of experience with companies such as Innova capital and Lightsource BP, where he supported the renewable energy development in different parts of the global industry. He will now assist with the development of energy infrastructure deals throughout their lifecycle, drawing on his passion for helping the transition of the energy sector and focusing on sustainability and innovation.
Dickerson joins Blackfinch as Senior Commercial Portfolio Manager, bringing more than 12 years’ experience in the energy sector to the role including 10 years working at Ecotricity where he managed the purchase power agreements and virtual power purchase, as well as financial modelling for development and acquisition projects.
