Apricum, a transaction advisory and strategy consulting firm specialized in renewable energy, has announced the appointment of Yusuf Macun as partner.
He joins existing partners Nikolai Dobrott, Florian Haacke, Dr. Moritz Borgmann and Florian Mayr and will lead Apricum’s project finance advisory practice from his base in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Macun’s banking and finance background enables Apricum to offer its clients a full-service package around large-scale renewable-energy projects, ranging from commercial advisory and coordinating functions to procurement advisory, full financial structuring, debt and equity arranging and financial modeling.
Yusuf Macun has over 20 years of experience in energy and infrastructure financing and investments, with a focus on the power, infrastructure, oil and gas and renewables sectors. His impressive track record includes the successful closing of cross-border deals in excess of US$17 billion in a range of emerging and developed markets, in particular the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa. Macun will continue to advise on non-renewable transactions through a separate platform to be announced in the coming weeks.
Nikolai Dobrott, Apricum’s founder and managing partner, said:
“We are seeing significant demand for Apricum’s specialist financial and commercial advisory services. We have been on the lookout for the right person who can lead and further develop this area of our business and we are thrilled that Yusuf is coming on board.”
Yusuf Macun said:
“It is a privilege to join Apricum and its world-class team to build a project finance advisory practice servicing clients across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia.”
