NEW YORK and MENLO PARK, Calif. and MEXICO CITY, Feb. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Riverstone Holdings LLC (Riverstone), a leading asset management firm that invests in the private markets, primarily within energy, power, decarbonization and infrastructure, today announced that Francisco Salas will join the Firm as a Managing Director on February 13th.

Mr. Salas has over twenty-five years of experience in the financial industry, and was part of leading corporate and investment banking firms in New York and Latin America.

He will focus on managing existing investments and identifying highly compelling opportunities within decarbonization and other core sectors, as well as capital raising throughout Latin America.

David Leuschen and Pierre Lapeyre Jr., Co-Founders of Riverstone, said, "The energy sector in Latin America is quickly evolving due to structural demand growth, decarbonization policies and deregulation. For nearly a decade, Riverstone has served as a pioneer in private markets investment within the region. Riverstone is committed to accelerating its market leadership and 15-year franchise across the renewable and decarbonization categories."

Francisco Salas added, "Riverstone understands that unprecedented disruption is expected in Latin America on account of sociopolitical factors, along with the desire for rapid adoption of clean energy sources. The Firm has a track record of identifying market trends and capitalizing on opportunities in the region, as demonstrated with the establishment of an office in Mexico City nearly ten years ago, as energy markets were opening to private investment. I look forward to bringing my experience to Riverstone as the Firm continues to expand its presence in the region and play a key role in innovating and establishing industry leading, purpose-driven, scaled companies."

The addition of Mr. Salas builds on recent developments contributing to the growth and potential of Riverstone's Latin American presence and broader decarbonization growth platform.
