Guzman Inc. Announces Launch of Guzman Energy LLC
Merger of Guzman Financial Engineers and Guzman Power Markets Poises Company for Significant Growth
Coral Gables, FL, June 9, 2014 – Guzman Inc. is proud to announce the launch of Guzman Energy LLC, a FERC registered wholesale electric utility and energy analytics and consulting firm, headquartered in South Florida. The company was formed through the merger of Guzman Financial Engineers and Guzman Power Markets, both subsidiaries of Guzman, Inc. Concurrent with the merger and platform launch, Guzman Energy is announcing the shift of its Energy and Environmental Marketing and Origination operations to Denver, Colorado.
Both of these companies that now comprise Guzman Energy have seen tremendous success since their individual launches in 2013 and combining them dramatically increases the scope and depth of services as well as combines two experienced and innovative teams with deep expertise in the energy space.
“Over the last year, we’ve seen first-hand the tremendous opportunity that exists right now in the energy space and the demand for a counter- party that can provide value added services, in addition to robust energy market liquidity. I’m certain that now is the time to leverage the complimentary scope of services of Guzman Power Markets and Guzman Financial Engineers, as well as commit significant additional resources to our energy ventures more broadly. Guzman Energy is poised for rapid growth, and we have very high expectations for this new platform,” said Leopoldo E. Guzman, Chairman and CEO, Guzman Energy.
As part of its growth strategy, Guzman Energy is shifting its energy origination operations to Denver, Colorado later this summer, while executive leadership, compliance and analytics will remain in Coral Gables. The move west allows Guzman Energy to be closer to customers and clients in the area.
“Denver’s status as a major energy hub makes it an ideal location to support our aggressive growth objectives, gives us access to a broad pool of talent, and gets us closer to our clients in the west” said Chris Riley, President, Guzman Energy. “We are committing significant additional resources as well as working aggressively to staff our trading and origination operations, and we’re confident our presence in Denver, in addition to our Coral Gables headquarters, will help us achieve that goal. We look forward to making significant staffing announcements in the coming weeks”
