Three cross to Rubicon

Rubicon Infrastructure Advisors has added personnel in both New York and Dublin. The consultancy was opened in 2011 by Scotiabank and Depfa executive Conor Kelly.

Rubicon Infrastructure Advisors is staffing up, hiring personnel at both its New York location as well as its Dublin home office, according to a press release from the company.

Rubicon, a consultancy launched in the fall of 2011, has named Maria Kang managing director of its New York office, the company said. In addition, Rubicon hired David Hegarty and Ahmed Memon to work in its Dublin headquarters. Hegarty and Memon were both given the title of associate director.

Kang has had a 20-year career in banking and is experienced in corporate finance and structured finance, as well as infrastructure and project finance.

Like Rubicon founder Conor Kelly, Kang joined the Bank of Nova Scotia in 2008 in a team lift-out from Depfa Bank. At ‘Scotiabank,’ Kang was a managing director of its global infrastructure group focusing on North America. For Depfa, she worked in infrastructure finance.

Hegarty joined Rubicon from Deloitte, where he was a senior manager specialising in financial modelling. Memon, who worked at Deloitte with Hegarty, focused on capital-raising.

Kelly had been a managing director for Scotiabank, leading a US and Latin America infrastructure advisory under its defunct Scotia Capital brand. Previously, he was a managing director for Depfa, a lender focused on infrastructure, until he spearheaded a 10-person lift-out to Scotia Capital.
