A member of Venture 17, Zdenek Hezky is an accomplished and results-driven capital markets professional with expertise in financial analysis, credit structuring, contract negotiation, debt pricing, and the syndication of various loan and fixed income transactions.  As the founder of Tahoe Green Capital Inc., Zdenek is focused on working with small-to-mid sized private companies and improving their access to capital.

Having spent more than 15 years on Wall Street, Zdenek has demonstrated his ability to successfully manage deal teams and execute various complex financings. His experience spans leveraged and management buyouts, leveraged recapitalizations, and other highly structured situations for companies across a variety of industry sectors in both the U.S. and Canada. Zdenek’s financial career began in investment banking at Salomon Brothers, where he worked as part of a highly seasoned nine-person International Debt Capital Markets team that secured and executed high-yield and investment-grade bond offerings, both structured and plain vanilla, for some of the world’s largest international companies and sovereign nation states.  Later, Zdenek joined CIT Group as Director of Capital Markets, where he helped position the firm to win and execute lead-mandates in support of syndicated leveraged-loan financings and other highly structured financing solutions for largely middle-market clients and their financial sponsors.  While with CIT, Zdenek completed over 20 lead-agented debt financings, raising over $3bn for his clients.  Upon returning to Canada in 2017, and just prior to establishing Tahoe Green Capital Inc., Zdenek worked with National Bank Financial’s Corporate Bank as Vice President, Loan Structuring and Syndications in Calgary, Alberta.

Zdenek originally hails from Windsor, Ontario.  He graduated in 1997 with a degree in Business and Economics from Lafayette College in Easton, PA, where he was a two-time team captain of the Division 1 Varsity Swim Team.  Zdenek earned an MBA, with academic honours, from the Schulich School of Business at York University.  He lives with his wife and two children in Calgary, Alberta.
