Commenting on Steven's appointment, Foresight Partner, Ricardo Piñeiro, said: “We are thrilled to have Steven join our expanding team, where he will undertake the important task of managing and optimising our growing infrastructure portfolio. With his broad-based knowledge of the sector, he will immediately be able to apply his experience and leadership to our existing assets and portfolio and technology team, and his expertise will be invaluable as we continue to build out our renewables infrastructure portfolio globally.”
