As Managing Director of Capital Corp Merchant Banking, Mr Herard has become a leading figure in international middle-market energy project financing and engineers all energy-related funding structures for projects at Capital Corp (ex: solar energy, wind energy, hydropower, oil and gas projects, etc). Mr Herard has received numerous awards for his work and other contributions including being appointed to the Presidential Business Commission, Honorary Co-Chairman of the Business Advisory Council, 2017 Gamechanger of the Year award, and nominated as Executive of the Year by the internationally acclaimed National Register’s Who’s Who, among many others.
Our vision is to provide middle-market clients the same tailored solutions and funding packages for energy projects worldwide by way of equity funding and debt financing - for existing energy companies as well as start-ups. The combination of our expertise in equity financing and our contacts with renown energy industry investors has made us a major player on an international scale as a provider of Capital; we not only can structure the financing for our clients, we also invest our own funds and syndicate the rest with our energy funding sources. Why? Because we believe in your energy project as much as you do.
"On the premise that a single firm can combine Funding and Professional Consulting, we can stimulate optimal performance for our clients. Our success has come from our culture, which strives to foster the same values that help any business succeed: Hard Work, Common Sense, and Integrity."
Gilles Herard, Jr.
