Merriman Curhan Beefs Up CleanTech Unit

May 21 2008 | 3:03pm ET

Merriman Curhan Ford has hired former private equity partner, investment banker and Clinton administration technology advisor, Timothy Newell, to head its newly created CleanTech Strategy Group and oversee environmental markets for its asset management group.
 
Newell will be instrumental in helping the firm launch its cleantech hedge fund, which will debut later in the year. Prior to joining Merriman Curhan, Newell most recently served as a partner with DFJ Element, a $280 million clean technology affiliate fund of Draper Fisher Jurvetson, a global venture capital firm.

Newell has also served in a number of positions in the U.S. government, most recently from 1993-1997 on the White House staff of former President Bill Clinton, where he was deputy director for policy in the Office of Science and Technology Policy and co-director of the National Environmental Technology Initiative.

“Tim brings great experience, relationships and strategic perspective on the huge opportunity in the energy and environmental markets,” said Jon Merriman, chief executive officer of Merriman Curhan Ford.  “He will help accelerate our growth in financing the green economy – particularly in building an asset management capability focused on investing in clean technologies.”
