Aaron Blomquist, head of infrastructure and managing director of investment banking of Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. (TPH), is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Blomquist entered the industry briefly working as a summer analyst at Credit Suisse before joining Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where he was ultimately director of its global energy and power investment banking group. He has also worked at Evercore Inc. as a vice president.
Today, Blomquist leads the infrastructure investment banking group at TPH, which includes midstream, refining, power and utilities. Becoming a bank managing director—and shortly thereafter a group head—was one of Blomquist’s key career milestones, and it is an accomplishment he reflects upon with modesty.
“Making managing director was because I really liked being a banker and uniquely focused on midstream investment banking solely for 12 years,” he says. “Becoming the head of the group was more luck—right place at the right time.”
