Geoffrey Strong, the former global co-head of infrastructure and natural resources at Apollo Global Management, has branched off to launch a new firm focused on infrastructure and energy-transition ventures, people with knowledge of the matter told Bloomberg.
Dubbed Northampton Capital Partners, the firm will establish offices in New York City and Miami (Strong is based in Florida).
Strong left Apollo in 2022, a full decade after joining the firm. He previously worked in the private equity and infrastructure groups at Blackstone, according to his LinkedIn page. Prior to Blackstone, he was a vice president of Morgan Stanley Capital Partners, the private equity business within Morgan Stanley.
According to Bloomberg, talks are expected to begin with a targeted group of investors in the coming months, and formal fundraising efforts are slated to begin in 2024 at the earliest.
