Energy Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused on investing in North America’s energy infrastructure, has hired Rahman D’Argenio as a principal in the firm’s Short Hills, New Jersey office.
D’Argenio will be responsible for leading new investments as well as monitoring portfolio company activity across all of the firm’s major areas of investment focus in fossil and renewable power generation, midstream gas and electric transmission.
D’Argenio joins Energy Capital after having spent the past seven years with the First Reserve where he was most recently a director in the firm’s Greenwich, Connecticut office. His responsibilities at First Reserve included a leadership role in power and related investments, which is the core area of investing at Energy Capital.

"We are very excited to have Rahman join our team," says Doug Kimmelman, Energy Capital’s senior partner. "Rahman has an exceptional reputation in the marketplace and will bring to us sector specific investment skills that we are confident will help us to successfully invest our growing base of capital under management."
