First Reserve adds O’Keefe to energy infrastructure team

First Reserve, a global private equity and infrastructure investment firm focused on energy, has enlarged its team of asset managers with the addition of 30-year industry veteran Luke O'Keefe to the firm's energy infrastructure team. He will be based in First Reserve’s Greenwich, Connecticut, office.

O'Keefe comes to First Reserve from General Electric's (GE’s) Energy Financial Services business, where he was the vice president of technical risk, serving as the US and European technical leader for the underwriting, construction, and management of power projects. He has a background with both renewable and conventional power facilities, having led the technical and commercial work for over $6 billion in such assets over the past several years. Prior to GE, O'Keefe worked at Texaco Inc.

First Reserve currently has over $4 billion dedicated to investing in energy infrastructure opportunities.
