Baringa, a leading global management consultancy, has launched its first Spanish office with the hire of Gerardo Fernández as a Partner based in Madrid.

Gerardo is an energy transition strategy consultant with over 18 years’ experience in the energy and resources sector. He joins from Strategy&, the strategy consulting business unit of PwC.

Gerardo supports corporates, financial investors, independent power producers and project developers on strategy, commercial, and transaction advisory in Spain and Portugal. He has strong experience advising clients on strategic planning, corporate strategy, renewable energy integration, flexibility solutions, corporate decarbonisation, and behind-the-meter propositions. He also has significant experience in the gas and clean molecules sectors, focusing on net-zero pathway studies, regulation, and advocacy.

The Madrid office will provide a range of market, commercial, strategic and technical advisory services to clients in Iberia and Latin America, with an initial focus on the energy and resources sector. With offices across Europe, as well as the United States, and Asia-Pacific, Baringa supports international clients across multiple regions.

Pavlos Trichakis, Partner, Baringa commented:

“Baringa has been active in the Iberian energy sector for over 15 years, a period which has seen the power generation sector in particular undergo major transformation. We are thrilled to announce the opening of our office in Madrid, which represents the next phase of growth for Baringa. Our presence in Madrid will bring more of our services to clients in the region, and demonstrates our belief that the Iberian peninsula is in a unique position to become a European green energy powerhouse.”

Gerardo Fernández commented:

“I am delighted to join Baringa, a global energy advisory leader, and contribute to its growth in Iberia. The transformation of the energy market has created a new playing field, and we look forward to supporting our clients as they navigate the next steps of their journey. Building on the foundations of best-in-class, data-driven market fundamental capabilities, we will provide a unique value proposition covering the full spectrum of market, commercial, strategic and technical advisory services.”

Alexis Stavropoulos, Senior Manager, Baringa commented:

“To meet net zero targets we will need to decarbonise all sectors of the economy, which will present a series of financial, technological, societal and policy challenges. I look forward to welcoming Gerardo to Baringa and to work closely together from our Madrid office to support our clients in the region as they look to navigate this complex environment.”
