Montreal, November 22, 2022 – Cycle Capital, a leading ClimateTech venture capital investment platform, announces the expansion of its investment and finance team with the addition of two new resources.
Ricardo Jordan joins the Investment team as an Associate. Ricardo brings over eight years of experience in cleantech startups, not only at the technology level delivering projects but also in business development and technical sales. Ricardo spent the first few years of his career as a Project Manager at Terragon Environmental Technologies – a Montreal-based company developing novel energy and biochar generation system and wastewater electrochemical treatment systems – where he led the technology implementation efforts in the field.
Most recently, Ricardo worked as a Business Development Manager at a Peru-based startup, Optima Energía, which focuses on industrial spaces’ digitalization and energy efficiency. In his role, Ricardo worked with clients to identify and develop new business opportunities to maximize energy savings and reduce carbon footprint.
Ricardo holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from McGill University and an MBA from HEC Montreal.
Alexandria Papillo joins the team as Director of Finance, where she will contribute towards preparing Cycle Capital’s financial statements and assist with accounting and administrative procedures.
As a CPA Auditor since 2017, Alexandria brings seven years of finance and auditing experience. She previously worked as a Senior Analyst at Gildan, a manufacturing apparel company, for three and a half years in the Financial Planning and Analysis group and External Reporting group. Before Gildan, she worked for nearly four years in Audit and Valuation Services at Deloitte.
She holds a BA in Accounting and a CPA Auditor title from Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business.
“Cycle Capital is thrilled to welcome Ricardo and Alexandria – two new talented individuals with unique expertise in technology and finance. Ricardo’s addition to the investment team will bring strong technical and engineering expertise to advance our due-diligence process and investments in innovative ClimateTech startups. Likewise, Alexandria’s financial and auditing background will be valuable for Cycle Capital’s investment team. We received a lot of candidates for these roles and are excited by the knowledge and experience Ricardo and Alexandria bring to the team.” adds Andrée-Lise Méthot, Founder and Managing Partner of Cycle Capital.
