The energy- and infrastructure-focused firm, which advised the TIFIA credit programme on a recent $1.68bn highway project, picked Laurent Lavigne du Cadet for the job.

Taylor-DeJongh, the Washington, DC-based energy and infrastructure financial advisory firm, has named Laurent Lavigne du Cadet as a new deputy chief executive officer.

Cadet is joining the firm from Amwal, the Qatari investment bank, where he most recently served as chief executive officer, according to a company newsletter. He is also a specialist in mergers and acquisition, project finance and direct investment.

Cadet will be based in Washington. The firm also hired Tom Spillane, who will be based in London, as an associate specializing in the power, renewable energy and oil and gas sectors, according to the newsletter.

Taylor-DeJongh focuses on advising companies in conventional and renewable energy, oil and gas, industrial and infrastructure. Last year, the firm served as the advisor to the US Department of Transportation’s TIFIA credit programme on its loan to the $1.68 billion I-595 corridor improvement project in Florida.
