Energy Investors Funds launched in 1987 as the first private equity fund manager dedicated exclusively to the independent power and electric utility sectors. In December 2003, the group's management team bought itself out entirely from then-owner Dresdner Kleinwort Capital, making it the first time in its history that itwas not a captive firm. With offices in Boston, New York and San Francisco, Energy Investors Funds power investments are located worldwide, but have a clear US focus. This intersection of the expansive energy and private equity sectors, then, provides a daunting task for anyone charged with running the firm. But Mitchell Coddington, partner and chief financial officer at Energy Investors Funds, is up to the challenge. Having joined the firm in 1993 from commercial real estate investor Property Capital Associates, Coddington today heads up all treasury, financial reporting, account, tax and IT matters. As a member of the firm's Investment Committee, he is involved at some level in every investment Energy Investors Funds makes, while as part of the Executive Committee, he helps to manage all of the day-to-day operations of the organization including human resource issues, and to set short and long term goals for the organization.
