Isabelle Demir, who was head of real assets and private equity at Frontier, has been appointed executive director at ICG.

She will work across all areas of the business, including transaction execution and client engagement.

Demir was at Frontier for almost three years, departing her role in April 2021.

Samaan's focus at ICG will be on deal execution.

Finally, Andrew Carman has been appointed asset director. He joins from AGL and has also worked at Santos where he held various senior management roles with a focus on commercialising and growing energy infrastructure assets in Australia.

"We are delighted to welcome these exceptional professionals to ICG to continue our recent growth and take advantage of our strong pipeline of opportunities," ICG managing director Tom Laidlaw said.
