Alinda Capital Partners promotes two of its Managing Directors to Partner

Andrew Bishop, Managing Director and head of Alinda's London office, and Joe Kelleher, Managing Director and General Counsel, have been named Partners of Alinda.

Mr. Bishop has 15 years of infrastructure experience and is responsible for Alinda's European business. He joined Alinda in 2012 from Goldman Sachs where he was a Managing Director in power, utilities and infrastructure investment banking in London, and where he originated mergers and acquisitions globally. He previously worked at Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank and PricewaterhouseCoopers in London. He has a B.A. Honours degree in Modern Languages from Bristol University.

Chris Beale, Alinda's Managing Partner, said:

"Andrew has demonstrated effective leadership of our European business. Andrew and the team he leads were very effective last year in timing the exit of our UK water utility investments and in our acquisition this year of Polish broadcast towers company Emitel, a market leading transaction."

Mr. Kelleher has over 20 years of infrastructure experience as a lawyer and an engineer. As General Counsel of Alinda, he provides the firm and its funds with legal and commercial advice, including advice on investment structures. Prior to joining Alinda in 2007, he held a senior position in the General Counsel's office at Citigroup in New York. He was previously an attorney at the law firm of Milbank Tweed Hadley and McCloy in New York, and prior to that was a professional engineer at Marinette Marine Corporation, a shipbuilding firm in Marinette, Wisconsin. He holds a B.S.E. degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from Webb Institute of Naval Architecture in New York and a J.D. degree from Fordham University School of Law in New York.

Chris Beale said:

"Joe was the main lawyer for my business at Citigroup when I ran the global infrastructure business there, so we go back a long way. Joe has been invaluable to Alinda and our funds with his legal and commercial advice. Remarkably, he worked as an engineer before going to law school. There aren't many lawyers who have done that. This combination of skills is great for infrastructure investing."
