Dominique Houde joins Opus (UK) as partner in the Energy Transition & Climate Change team

Energy Transition and Climate Change is a core sector of Mergers Alliance partner in the UK. Opus is one of the first corporate finance firms covering the sector comprehensively.

Dominique has more than 20 years of M&A experience while at Merrill Lynch, ABN AMRO/RBS, and Improved Corporate Finance, where he was involved in a large number of key mobility and clean energy transactions, bringing global investors to these companies.  Dominique was also a co-founder of Autotech Ventures, the first independent VC firm in the automotive technology space based in Silicon Valley, and held senior roles in EV charging software and infrastructure companies.

Dominique stated: “Opus Corporate Finance has built a very impressive deal flow and significant expertise in the overall Energy Transition space, from software to renewable power, clean fuels, batteries and renewable infrastructure transactions among others, right at the heart of London, a major centre of capital flows.  I am looking forward to furthering the reach of Opus in the mobility and infrastructure areas in this ever-integrated space, as deal volume and size scale up in the years to come.”

John McElroy, co-head of Energy Transition & Climate Change at Opus added: “We are delighted to have attracted such an experienced sector banker to Opus and look forward to working with Dominique as we broaden and deepen our well established Energy Transition & Climate Change practice.  Dominique’s expertise in e-mobility in particular builds on and complements Opus’ strong track record in that vertical.”
