Minneapolis, MN – North Sky Capital (“North Sky”), a pioneer in impact investing, is pleased to announce that Andrew Harris has been promoted to Managing Director. Since joining the firm in 2018, Andrew has successfully led the business development efforts for the firm’s two flagship strategies: sustainable infrastructure and impact private equity (secondaries).
“Andrew’s strategic insights, industry knowledge, investor relationships and deal sourcing capabilities have been instrumental in North Sky’s recent growth,” said North Sky CEO, Scott Barrington. “Among other accomplishments, Andrew played a lead role in developing our sustainable infrastructure strategy for Opportunity Zones. He waded through a challenging set of new tax laws, evolving treasury regulations and investor demands to create an elegant riff on our existing infrastructure strategy, which we expect will deliver attractive investment returns, help move our country forward to a renewable energy future and provide economic benefits to low-income areas across the USA.”
“Thanks to Andrew’s market experience and strong work ethic, North Sky has significantly grown its investor base in recent years,” said Gretchen Postula, Head of Investor Relations. “Specifically, he played an integral role in the success of our 2019 impact secondaries fund, which was oversubscribed.”
Andrew recently received the Founders Award for Extraordinary Service from the Resolution Project, a non-profit that provides a pathway to action for college-age social entrepreneurs. Prior to joining North Sky Capital, Andrew served as a Senior Vice President at Threadmark, an advisory firm focused on raising capital for infrastructure and real estate firms in North America and Europe. Andrew is a graduate of Columbia University.
