Rodric David understands the world of business

Posted by admin

Rodric David understands the world of business due to his extensive experience in that environment. He has a wealth of experience working in entrepreneurship, particularly on the international level. Rodric David is currently the Executive Chairman at a company called United Capital Partners, which is a firm that he is very excited about. Prior to working with United Capital Partners, though, Rodric David has been involved in many other ventures. He has held leadership positions for a number of companies over the years. This included a stint as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Emergent Capital Limited, which is an Abu Dhabi-based private equity firm. The firm, headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, was founded in 2008 in order to raise funds. Although it was the midst of the financial crisis, this provided a unique opportunity for investment. The depressed economy allowed for the firm to make speculative investments, providing an opportunity for investors who saw potential in certain markets. Emergent Capital Limited took the opportunity to invest in cleantech and emerging technologies at the time.

Rodric David led Emergent Capital Limited in January of 2009, which was when that firm purchased an Alternative Waste Treatment business named Global Renewables Limited. This Sydney-based company was a major purchase for Emergent Capital Limited—it was purchased from GUD Holdings Limited, which is an Australian Stock Exchange listed company. Rodric David was named the Chairman of Global Renewables Limited in February of 2009 and soon oversaw the negotiation of a new contract with WSN Environmental Solution, which is a New South Wales government-owned corporation.

In 2011, Rodric David oversaw the sales of Emergent Capital Limited’s stake in Global Renewables Limited and soon thereafter was able to resign as Chairman of Global Renewables Limited. The sale of that venture proved to be very positive, with investors receiving a return that was over twenty-seven times their original investment.
