VERO BEACH, FL., August 11, 2020 – Sea Oak is pleased to announce the addition of Chinedu Okpala to the team as its first Impact Fellow. Sea Oak’s Impact Fellowship Program invites current MBA students or recent MBA graduates to join the Sea Oak team and gain exposure to impact investing in the renewable energy space specifically in community solar and battery storage projects.
“Supporting the next generation of impact investors who will spark meaningful change in the renewable energy sector is an important part of our corporate mission,” said Dan Poydenis, CEO of Sea Oak Capital. “Participants gain investment experience as well as exposure to the broader benefit community solar projects bring to municipalities and local businesses.”
