Alex Georgianna

Associate Director

Alex has over two decades experience in finance and the commercial vehicle sectors before he moved into the specific challenge of investing in electric vehicle adoption and its associated charging infrastructure. 

A New Yorker, Alex began his career in the provision of transaction advisory services before moving client-side with Avis Rent-a-car and its corporate parent Cendant Corp.  There, he specialized in multi-billion-dollar transactions including the acquisition of PHH, then one of the world’s largest vehicle leasing companies before divesting European operations to BNP Paribas to form Swindon-based Arval.  He then drove the acquisition and integration of Budget Rent-a-car to form Avis Budget Group before then turning around its failing Ryder Truck Rental business.

Holding both an MBA and MSc in economics, Alex’s practice here at Steer is in advising clients on fleet electrification, alternative models of fleet access, mobility-as-a-service, the daily rental and leasing sectors, the evolving retail automotive market and other projects at the intersection of finance, asset management and transportation. 

Based in London but operating globally Alex works with our Infrastructure Advisory and New Mobility teams for private and public sector clients.  Most recently, he’s focussed on helping developers and investors define and create s “good” investable EV charging infrastructure through the scale and predictability of cash flows created.
