Team

Emil W. Henry, Jr., Founder, CEO and CIO of Tiger Infrastructure Partners, is a recognized leader and innovator in private equity and public policy.

Building on a decades-long track record in high-profile government and private-sector roles, Emil launched Tiger in 2010 to provide transformational growth capital to enable the infrastructure of tomorrow. Since then, Tiger and its partners have deployed billions of dollars to develop, construct and operate new and next generation infrastructure across the Digital Infrastructure, Energy Transition and Transportation sectors in North America and Europe. Under Emil’s leadership, Tiger has emerged as an innovator in the infrastructure market.

In 2005, Emil was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate to serve as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. In this capacity, he oversaw the Office of Critical Infrastructure Protection, where he identified the vast unmet need for private investment to create and enhance America’s infrastructure. To capitalize on this market opportunity, he joined Lehman Brothers upon leaving government in 2007. As Global Head of Lehman’s infrastructure private equity business, he assembled the core team that is today responsible for managing Tiger’s infrastructure funds.

At the U.S. Treasury, Emil was one of the first senior U.S. officials to identify how a systemic crisis might unfold due to Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s concentrated holdings of sub-prime mortgages. He subsequently led Treasury’s efforts to establish emergency response protocols in the event of a financial crisis. His foresight and leadership were recognized with the Alexander Hamilton Award, Treasury’s highest honor.

From 1990 until he entered government in 2005, Emil was a Partner and Managing Director with Gleacher Partners. As Chairman of Asset Management, he led the firm’s expansion into a sophisticated array of innovative alternative investments from its initial industry-leading M&A focus.
