Tortoise Capital Advisors has added four seasoned portfolio managers to its investment committee, effective 30 June, 2015.
Brian Kessens, James Mick, Matthew Sallee and Robert Thummel, all managing directors of Tortoise, serve in significant roles alongside the Investment Committee as part of Tortoise’s portfolio management team, and this will formalise their roles. They will join current Investment Committee members Kevin Birzer, Zach Hamel, Terry Matlack and Ken Malvey. The Investment Committee will continue to provide investment strategy oversight to the portfolio team, who implements the strategy.
Also effective 30 June, 2015, one of Tortoise’s five founding managing directors, Dave Schulte, will leave Tortoise Capital Advisors to allow him to focus his efforts on Corridor InfraTrust Management LLC, which he co-founded in 2011. Schulte will retain an ownership interest in Tortoise, but will no longer serve on the Investment Committee.
