Tailwater Capital Portfolio Company Freestone Holdco Announces 2 Executive Promotions » Dallas Innovates

Freestone Holdco LLC, a Dallas-based portfolio company of Dallas’ Tailwater Capital LLC focused on disruptive energy transition investments, announced the promotions of Ellen Wilkirson to managing director and Pierce Latham to vice president.

“As we continue to grow the Freestone platform and partner with disruptive businesses enabling the transition to a more carbon-neutral economy, both Ellen and Pierce have played a significant role in our success to date, and I am pleased to recognize those contributions with these well-deserved promotions,” Alan Boswell, managing director at Freestone, said in a statement.

Boswell looks to Ellen and Pierce to build on the firm’s momentum, expand its portfolio of transformative investments, and “capitalize on exciting new initiatives and opportunities alongside our partners at Tailwater.”

Wilkirson joined Freestone in April 2021 and has been instrumental in sourcing and evaluating its investments in Elemental Recycling and Momentum Technologies.

She will continue to focus on the origination of new opportunities, executing investments, and partnering with management teams to identify and implement long-term strategic and growth initiatives, the company said. Before joining Freestone, Wilkirson worked as a vice president at Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors focusing on public and private investments in energy infrastructure and renewable energy.

She serves as a director for Momentum Technologies and a board observer for Elemental Recycling.

Latham came to Freestone in May 2021 and has made significant contributions to the execution of Freestone’s investment strategy, the company said. As vice president, he will continue to be responsible for evaluating, executing, and monitoring Freestone’s investments.

Before Freestone, Latham worked in investment banking at Morgan Stanley in the Global Natural Resources group and RBC Capital Markets in the Global Power and Utilities group.

Freestone has made two investments in the waste-to-value sector including Elemental Recycling, a company that has developed a process to upcycle plastic and other organic waste material into high-quality graphite and hydrogen, and Momentum Technologies, a lithium-ion battery and rare earth magnet recycling company.
