Walter L. Schindler, PhD, JD has 38 years of legal experience as an attorney specializing in corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, and public offerings of securities, including 19 years at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, where he was a Partner for 12 years, including serving as the managing partner of the Orange County Office from 1996 to 1999, the highest growth period in that office’s history to date.
He was the Founder of SAIL Capital Partners LLC, an early US pioneer in sustainable investment, and now the CEO of Transformation LLC, which focuses on the convergence of technology and energy across the entire spectrum of energy and power from oil and gas to solar and wind. Under his leadership SAIL Capital Partners LLC was selected by the World Economic Forum as a member of its Community of Global Growth Companies and SAIL was nominated for Private Equity Manager of the Year by Foundation & Endowment Money Management. In addition, SAIL Capital was chosen by the U.S. Department of Commerce to co-lead with Deutsche Bank the first U.S. Trade Mission on Clean Energy.
Dr. Schindler is a unique entrepreneur who has been focused on the world’s biggest global issues like climate change and sustainability since the 1980’s, despite many nay-sayers. Although Dr. Schindler could have continued as managing partner at an international law firm, he took a more difficult path of paving the way for the future of energy investing. He has dedicated the last 25 years of his life to solving the world’s biggest problems as an investor, and lives on the idea that we can only make change together, on a united front. That is why he has created his new firm, Transformation, LLC. He knew that changing the world’s biggest industries (energy, water, food, housing) was only going to work if he partnered with the leading organizations in those spaces. At Transformation, he is doing just that
