    Whaling joins Avista Capital Partners as energy industry executive

    Avista Capital Partners

    Avista Capital Partners, a private equity firm, reports that Graham Whaling has joined the firm as an industry executive focused on energy investments. Whaling was most recently CEO of Parkman Whaling LLC, an oil and gas investment banking advisory firm that he co-founded in 2007.

    Before forming Parkman Whaling, Whaling was chairman and CEO of Laredo Energy, which he co-founded in 2001 (and in which Avista Capital Partners invested in 2008). Prior to Laredo, he was a managing director at DLJ Merchant Banking, where he helped build Global Energy Partners, an upstream energy practice.

    Prior to DLJ Merchant Banking, Whaling was chairman and CEO of Monterey Resources, which was acquired by Texaco in 1997. Previously, he had been CFO of Santa Fe Energy, from which Monterey was spun off. Whaling spent seven years as an energy-focused investment banker at Lazard Freres & Co. and CS First Boston. He began his career as a petroleum engineer with Ryder Scott Co.

    Whaling holds a bachelor's degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Texas, and a Master of Business Administration degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
