Daniel Graf von der Schulenburg joins Ardian's infra team

Tuesday, March 31, 2020
Opalesque Industry Update - Ardian, a world-leading private investment house, has appointed Daniel Graf von der Schulenburg as Managing Director and Head of Infrastructure Germany with effect from 1 April 2020. Schulenburg will be based in Ardian's Frankfurt office where he will be responsible for its infrastructure investment activities. As part of his new role, he will also join EWE's Supervisory Board. At the end of February 2020, Ardian Infrastructure completed the acquisition of a 26 percent stake in EWE, a leading German utility.

Daniel Graf von der Schulenburg most recently served as a Partner at 3i in London, where he was responsible for infrastructure investments in the energy, telecommunications and transport sectors. Previously, Schulenburg worked for the energy-focused investment company Hudson Clean Energy Partners in New York and London, where he also served on the infrastructure investment committee. He is a co-founder of Sunlight Financial, a specialty finance company for retail energy systems in the USA.

Schulenburg holds a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cambridge. Prior to this, he earned Master of Science degrees in Business Management from the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (EAP-ESCP) and in Industrial Engineering from the Technical University of Berlin.

Mathias Burghardt, Member of the Executive Committee at Ardian and Head of Ardian Infrastructure said: "We are very pleased to welcome Daniel in our senior leadership team. His track record and infrastructure expertise in particular in the energy sector and his knowledge of German speaking countries make him a great addition as we seek to reinforce our position in these regions as well to accelerate our contribution to the energy transition. The German infrastructure market is very interesting for Ardian, and we are confident that our disciplined and industrial-oriented approach will be able to create long-term value."

Schulenburg said: "Ardian Infrastructure has an outstanding reputation and track record as one of the largest long-term infrastructure investors in Europe across sectors including utilities, renewable energy, electricity and gas networks, telecommunications, roads and airports. I am very excited to join such an exceptional firm and look forward to helping the team realize new investments and supporting EWE's long-term strategy."
