Capcora announces another hire for the energy & infrastructure team. Juan Ruiz-Jarabo will support the Capcora team in further internationalization from June 2020. After Henning Prigge and Andreas Bodensohn, Juan is the third senior in a row who joins the consulting firm specialized on real assets.
Born in Spain, Juan has spent most of his career in management positions in large and innovative energy corporations. His personal focus was on development of new markets and business units in the EMEA and LATAM regions. At Envision, he has led the Business Development for the EMEA region and responsible for the project pipelines in France and Sweden as well as the integration of its French development arm, Velocita. Prior to this, he was responsible for turbine sales at Senvion in Middle East and Africa. His career in renewable energies space started at Enercon spearheading wind and manufacturing business in Uruguay and Spain.
Juan is fluent in several languages, including French, Spanish, German and English. He studied in Madrid and Texas and holds two master's degrees in computer engineering and renewable energies.
At Capcora working from the Münster branch, Juan will initially focus on expanding activities in the Iberian market.
“Only in our current mandates, we are active in ten countries and have not yet reached the end. Juan has years of experience in developing new markets and gained an international network. We look forward to expand further together,” said Managing Partners Jochen Magerfleisch and Alexander Kuhn.
“With its international alignment, Capcora offers me the opportunity to realise my full potential. The markets in Europe, especially in southern Europe, are developing rapidly, since projects can be realized on a subsidy-free basis - the increased complexity, however, requires professional M&A and financing advice. I look forward to the exciting task of opening up new partnerships and markets for Capcora, ”says Juan Ruiz-Jarabo, new investment director at Capcora.
