Greentech Capital Advisors (“Greentech”) is pleased to announce that John McClure will be joining the firm as a Partner in our San Francisco office, effective today May 13, 2019.

John McClureJohn joins Greentech from RBC Capital Markets where he was a Managing Director in their investment banking division, covering both Advanced Transportation and Semiconductors.

Prior to joining RBC, John worked at Intel, where he was a founding member of the Automated Driving Group at the company’s headquarters in Santa Clara.
