A private equity official has left Ares-EIF after over a decade with the firm, most recently as a partner.
Jose Torres Monllor joined Ares-EIF predecessor firm Energy Investor Funds in 2006 and had been a partner since 2013.
News of the departure comes shortly after PFR reported that Jason Kahan, who was a vice president in the firm's infrastructure and power group, had left for Basalt Infrastructure Partners (PFR, 1/15, 1/7).
Torres Monllor's post-Ares-EIF plans could not immediately be established. His profile on professional networking site LinkedIn describes him as managing partner of Monllor Capital Partners, based in San Francisco and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Prior to joining EIF, Torres Monllor had been vice president and head of structured finance at CoBank, and a vice president at Société Générale before that. He had begun his career at ING Barings, where he was a vice president first in Santiago Province, Chile, and later in New York.
Meanwhile, Ares-EIF has announced the appointment of Antoinette “Toni” Bush to its board of directors. Bush, a former Skadden partner, is executive vice president and global head of government affairs for media company News Corp.
