Marathon Capital, the sustainable-energy-focused investment bank and financial advisor, has named Iain Watson country manager of its Canadian operations.

Watson, most recently the head of power & utilities at National Bank Financial, will be based in Calgary. He brings over 20 years of advisory experience to Marathon, including sector-specific expertise across infrastructure and clean energy.

"Canada has made substantial progress towards the clean energy transformation and is a robust market we've been well-acquainted with having grown our presence across North America, Europe and Asia," said Ted Brandt, chief executive of Marathon Capital.

"We look forward to tapping into Iain's deep expertise within the Canadian market and reestablishing ourselves among the country's diverse industry participants as we continue expanding our footprint across key global markets."

At National Bank Financial, Watson was responsible for primary account coverage and mandate origination, with clients in the power, utilities and clean technology industries, including global financial sponsors. Before that, he held roles at Canaccord and RBC Capital Markets in Calgary and SG Barr Devlin in New York.

Marathon Capital operates from its global headquarters in Chicago, IL, with offices in New York, Houston, San Francisco and London, as well as representative offices in Calgary, São Paulo and Madrid.
