Scott Sergeant combines his lifelong passion for the outdoors with his professional career at international investment bank Houlihan Lokey. Sergeant has built a career working with companies that are focused on bettering the environment by helping them raise capital, find proper investors, plan expansions or cutbacks and much more.

Sergeant works with companies that focus on sustainability, safety, environmental compliance, energy efficiency and more.

“As a finance guy, I’m not personally changing the world the way these companies are,” Sergeant says, “but I get to be exposed to these companies on a regular basis to really help them do what they want to accomplish.”
