VANCOUVER, Feb. 28, 2017 /CNW/ - Steelhead LNG CEO Nigel Kuzemko announced today that the company has hired the former head of BBVA Securities' Project Finance North America business, as Chief Financial Advisor.
Kerri L. Fox brings more than 20 years of experience structuring and executing financings for energy and infrastructure projects in Canada, the United States and Latin America, including liquefied natural gas projects. Fox will provide input and direction on Steelhead LNG's project financing, contract structuring and risk mitigation strategies.
"With its unique approach to First Nations relationships and its cost-saving At-Shore LNG project design, Steelhead LNG has positioned itself to become a successful exporter of LNG from British Columbia that is cost-competitive with the U.S. Gulf Coast projects," said Fox. "I look forward to contributing my financial, commercial and legal experience as Steelhead LNG continues to move towards a projected 2019 FID."
Prior to her role at BBVA Securities Inc., Kerri ran the global export and project finance business for Fortis Capital Corp. and held various roles in the Structured and Project Finance Group at Deutsche Bank. She began her career as a project finance attorney at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy.
Kerri currently serves on the Board of Directors of Alterra Power Corp., a Vancouver-based renewable energy independent power producer; and TerraForm Power, a dividend growth-oriented company formed to own and operate contracted clean power generation assets.
"We have made significant progress in key areas of advancing our environmentally sustainable and cost-competitive At-Shore LNG projects," said Kuzemko. "Kerri's impressive legal, financial and clean power generation experience makes her an excellent addition to our experienced leadership team. Our company is increasingly well positioned to achieve its future development goals."
Fox will be based out of Steelhead LNG's corporate headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Dale Hohm, Steelhead LNG's former Chief Financial Advisor, will continue to support the company, working alongside Kerri.
