Toronto-based investment firm Bastion Infrastructure Group has added Kevin Kerr to its team as a partner.
Kerr, pictured, has significant experience in infrastructure investing, including deal origination, execution, asset management, financing and consortium building across various sectors and multiple geographies, said the firm.
He spent more than 13 years at Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board and was a founding member of Teachers’ Infrastructure Group along with Bastion managing partner Ron Lepin.
From 2008, Kevin held the role of global head of investments for TIG, with an asset portfolio of over C$10bn ($9.7bn).
Lepin said, “Kevin is an extremely experienced infrastructure investor who played a major leadership role in the development and management of Teachers’ Infrastructure Group, one of the most successful and sophisticated infrastructure investors globally.
“He has been an active investor and participant in the evolution of the asset class over the last 10 years, and has a deep and broad understanding of infrastructure assets globally. His knowledge and extensive investment experience will greatly benefit our clients.”
Earlier this month it was reported that Bastion is seeking $2bn for its inaugural fund.
