The Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec has appointed Emmanuel Jaclot as executive vice-president of infrastructure.

In the new role, Jaclot will manage the Caisse’s infrastructure portfolio, which totals more than $16 billion in assets. He will also eventually head up CDPQ Infra, a subsidiary that’s responsible for developing and operating the pension fund’s infrastructure projects.

Jaclot steps into the role recently vacated by Macky Tall, who was appointed head of liquid markets and the Réseau express métropolitain project.

“We knew from the first time we met him that Emmanuel was an exceptional talent,” said Michael Sabia, president and chief executive officer of the Caisse, in a news release. “He’s completed major deals around the world and developed solid operational expertise, particularly in renewable energy. His arrival gives la Caisse access to an even larger pool of opportunities to continue expanding our global presence in infrastructure.” 

Previously, Jaclot was senior vice-president and head of mergers and acquisitions at Schneider Electric. He also held positions at EDF Energy in Paris, France, including deputy chief executive officer of strategy, mergers and acquisitions and France.

“I’m excited to join la Caisse and build upon the impressive work its team has done over the last 20 years as a pioneer in direct infrastructure investment,” said Jaclot. “With a well-diversified portfolio, la Caisse is recognized around the world for its expertise and the quality of its teams. I very much look forward to being part of the future growth of this portfolio that is central to la Caisse’s strategy,” said Jaclot.
