TRANSEARCH was recently selected by the Chairman and CEO of an early stage, pre-revenue biofuels and specialty chemicals manufacturer headquartered in Dallas. Founded in 2007, the company had previously completed A and B round funding. The board and leadership team required an executive who would lead the company through its C round, which was already in process, and spearhead future capital raising efforts to support the ongoing project pipeline to the tune of several hundred million dollars. With considerations such as burn-rate, joint venture obligations, and near-term project costs, identifying an individual with a proven track record of raising funds in the industry was critical.

After an expansive search targeting renewable fuels and cleantech companies throughout the United States, TRANSEARCH identified a strong CFO from a similar biofuels company with a very relevant and recent track record of getting creative deals done in the space. Not only did this person have a track record within the industry, he brought experience working with the same strategic partners and investors and strong relationships with these key individuals from an Investor Relations standpoint. In just a short time on board, the new VP Finance & IR has the company on track to complete its C round and positioned to fully participate in its new 50-50 joint venture project opportunities.
