Bridgewater Associates has landed a prominent energy entrepreneur.
Christina Lampe-Onnerud was named a senior management associate at the world's largest hedge fund. Lampe-Onnerud is the founder of lithium-ion battery company Boston-Power, which last year completed a new round of fundraising and moved most of its operations to China, with Lampe-Onnerud stepping down from its board of directors and her husband, Per Onnerud, stepping down as CEO.
Lampe-Onnerud and her husband recently launched a new battery company, Cloteam, which Onnerud is running. Lampe-Onnerud told the Boston Globe that her job at Bridgewater is a full-time affair, and that the family is buying a house in Westport, Conn., Bridgewater's base.
"The thing I love [about Bridgewater] is it's a really high-caliber team," she told the Globe. "I have every intention of giving everything I can and learning everything I can."
