Pioneering global low-carbon developer Enterprize Energy has announced with immediate effect the appointment of Jérôme Guillet to the Board.
Guillet was a founder of Green Giraffe in 2010, a pure player renewable energy financial advisory, serving as Managing Director from 2010 to 2021. There he developed a robust reputation as a pioneer in securing offshore wind finance and deal opportunities, bringing complex transactions to close in contrasting markets and circumstances. During his tenure he oversaw the company’s growth from 10 staff in 2 offices to 120 staff in 8 offices across 4 continents.
With over two decades experience helping emerging players navigate a crowded and highly competitive industry, Guillet will assist Enterprize in managing their rapidly growing global portfolio through various milestones, extracting best value at each stage.
“I’m extremely proud and excited to join the Board of Enterprize, supporting Ian Hatton and his talented offshore wind development team with their ambitious plans,” commented Guillet. “I’ve known Ian for over 20 years, observing his dedication to the development of offshore wind projects from the earliest stage, opening up new markets and making things happen when few believed it possible. There is a huge need for entrepreneurial spirit like this in the industry, and it’s a privilege to be asked to join this journey.”
Enterprize’s founder and Chairman, Ian Hatton, commented, “I have worked with Jérôme on numerous offshore wind developments for more than two decades. The opportunity to bring his financing expertise to bear on our current and future energy transition projects is a major enhancement.”
Guillet graduated from the Ecole Polytechnique ParisTech and holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the EHESS in Paris. Before creating Green Giraffe, he worked in the energy project finance teams of Crédit Lyonnais (1996–2002) and Dexia (2002–2010).
For the past 10 years he has been consistently recognised among the “most influential people in the wind industry” by Wind Power Monthly and A Word About Wind.
