Hemant Mandal joins as Senior Adviser, continuing expansion of GC advisor network

Global Counsel, a leading global strategic advisory firm that helps corporates, investors, public sector, and civil society organizations manage risks and opportunities in politics, regulation, and public policy, is excited to announce the expansion of its adviser network in Asia with the addition of Hemant Mandal as a Senior Adviser. 

Hemant’s specialisms span energy generation (solar, wind, hydro, biomass), transition (batteries, green hydrogen, off grid solutions), transmission, and distribution sectors, having successfully created portfolios of more than $10B. He has more than twenty-five years’ experience in the private sector and international institutions, having worked for the IFC/ World Bank Group, Shell Wind, GE, one of the largest single-family office’s globally, independent power producers and run his own companies at the operational and C-suite levels.
Currently based in Singapore, Hemant has also spent a significant amount of time in India, China, the US and Vietnam. He is an engineer by training and has an MBA from the Ross School of Business at The University of Michigan. 
At Global Counsel, Hemant's wealth of experience is an invaluable asset for clients looking to 1) enter and create markets in the evolving energy/climate space; and 2) assess global regulatory and techno-commercial needs to support the scale-up of bankable energy business models. 

This expansion is part of Global Counsel's sustained initiative to invest in key markets across the region. Together with GC's team of consultants based in Singapore, the adviser network will bolster GC's regional coverage and provide consulting services to clients so they can seize growth opportunities in cross-border trade and investment between Asia and the rest of the world.

Andrew Yeo, Asia Practice Director and Head of the Singapore office, said, "I am excited to have Hemant join the Asia office. Countries in the region are only just beginning to embark on their energy transition journey, and his extensive experience in the sector expands our offering to both corporates and investors alike as they participate more keenly in the space."
