Blake London, managing director in Credit Suisse’s energy equity capital markets division, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
During his career, London has executed plenty of transactions and considers each one a success, even during this challenging environment. He was most recently involved in Brigham Minerals Inc.’s IPO in April.
Though gratified by closing deals, he is passionate about the process from start to finish.
“I love to partner with entrepreneurs at an early point in the company’s lifecycle and help them think through the important decision points along the way,” London said. “Oil and gas is an entrepreneurial industry, which is what makes it so great.”
Today, London leads Credit Suisse’s energy equity capital markets division where he and his team have successfully raised approximately $27 billion over 66 lead left equity transactions since 2015.
