Shikun & Binui is Israel’s leading infrastructure and real estate company. A global corporation that operates through its subsidiaries and active in more than 20 countries on four continents, involved in various fields, including infrastructure, real estate development, energy, and concessions.
The business has an ambition to diversify by developing a key presence across the North American renewable energy market, acquiring key assets and companies across the sector.
Shikun had already started to make several large-scale PPP investments and subsequently built a team in Florida and Connecticut but there were several challenges to overcome:
InfraBe created a detailed market map outlining all the major renewable energy companies & IPP’s across the USA, ensuring they had M&A teams. Armed with this insight, our research team set to define a detailed list of the best talent, focussing initially on Florida.
After only two weeks of approaches, a shortlist of six professionals were presented. Following detailed screening, interviews, and negotiations, InfraBe secured two of the best renewable energy professionals, working for the no.1 renewable energy development company Nextera.
InfraBe proudly secured Kevin Yaich (President) and his number 2, Jeremy Debony (Executive Vice President) to Shikun & Binui. Both have already made four acquisitions.
“We recently set up a new team in North America to acquire renewable energy projects and partnered with InfraBe to source the very best professionals in the market. They delivered an exceptional pool of talent resulting in two senior hires, who have exceptional experience and track record executing and originating renewable energy transactions. They work quickly, with precision and are an absolute pleasure to deal with.”
