Acertitude Recruits Chief Financial Officer for Aligned Energy

Strong finance executive to accelerate growth for private equity–backed infrastructure technology company.

New York, NY, April 18, 2017 — Acertitude, the executive search firm on a mission to unleash human potential, is delighted to share the placement of Anubhav Raj as Chief Financial Officer of Aligned Energy, an infrastructure technology company that offers colocation and build-to-scale data center solutions to cloud, telecom, enterprise, and service providers.

This addition to their leadership team will further advance Aligned Energy’s mission to innovate and optimize data center infrastructure to reduce the social, economic, and environmental impact of the new digital age.

“Raj has an impressive track record of fostering profitable corporate expansion through the design and successful implementation of fiscal strategy and capital raising,” said Jakob Carnemark, founder and CEO of Aligned Energy. “His unique insight into both our company and market demands will prove invaluable as we continue to expand rapidly.”

The executive search was co-led by Acertitude Managing Partner Kevin O’Neill and Partner Geoff Votta, who collaborated closely with Aligned Energy’s executive team and the company’s private equity backer, BlueMountain Capital. Both Kevin and Geoff have significant experience bringing agile and dynamic executives into high-growth and private equity–backed enterprises in the technology space.

“Raj will undoubtedly make an immediate impact at Aligned Energy,” said Geoff. “He excels at the intersection of strategy and finance, which makes him an ideal fit for the company’s assertive growth plan and innovative data center model.”
