Investing in more than 140 projects encompassing UK energy infrastructure and similar renewable ventures overseas, over the last decade, Downing LLP is an infrastructure & renewable energy investment house and asset manager.
Both skills sets are unique and in very short supply. There are few investment vehicles that have dedicated asset management teams and most of the MD’s are well looked after and not looking to move.
There were only a few options, especially for the asset management role. Whilst this required an in-depth head hunt, InfraBe were confident on their extensive network, leveraging their 20 years of experience. Such professionals only engage with trusted head-hunters they know.
Two exceptional professionals: Tom Moore, Asset Management MD and Tony Gannon Senior Development Director, were secured by InfraBe, joining from the Foresight Group & SSE respectively.
InfraBe continue to recruit across the business, helping build out the wider senior team. As a result, Downing continues to flourish, recently closing an IPO and opening offices in Norway following a number of key hydro investments.
“My recent experience of working with Daniel and the team was incredibly positive. I was not actively looking but Daniel headhunted me for an exceptional opportunity, a role he clearly communicated. His advice and guidance throughout the process was well received, often giving comparisons and market information that helped further sharpen my judgment. Daniel and his team are clearly passionate about getting the best results for their clients and candidates.”

“Form my experience, InfraBe have an unrivalled network across the renewable energy sector. What makes them unique is their appreciation of both the developers and the infra funds and banks which resulted in a truly bespoke opportunity with Downing. Knowledgeable, trustworthy and incredibly efficient, meaning the process was seamless.”
