Founder & MANAGING PARTNER
Sarah Driansky is an energy and infrastructure expert with nearly two decades of experience in mechanical engineering, project management, operations, business intelligence, finance, business development and origination.
Ms. Driansky started her career as a Mechanical Engineer for DMJM Harris (AECOM) where she focused on energy, power and infrastructure development. She wrote feasibility studies, designed masterplans, and completed mechanical engineering designs for renewable and traditional power plants, waste water plants, marine transfer stations, parks and airports before becoming a Project Engineer and Project Manager.
After a sprint in energy investment banking at Credit Suisse, Ms. Driansky joined Hess Corporation where she held leadership roles in oil supply, global business intelligence, electric and DSR business development and natural gas origination. With Centrica’s acquisition of the Energy Marketing Division of Hess, Sarah led North American Business Development for their fast-fill compressed natural gas business. While in that role, she expanded it to include deal origination for generation developers in assets such as fuel cells, anaerobic digestion, biogas and other large consumers and producers of natural gas, electric, RECs, and RINs.
Sarah identified the need for Lido Energy Partners after many late-night strategy sessions with former colleagues who were running sales and marketing organizations and were seeking guidance on how to build their businesses. In 2017, Lido Energy Partners was formalized.
Ms. Driansky holds an MBA in Finance from New York University where she earned a fellowship from the Hess Foundation, secured a national grant for the University to expand water bottle refill stations throughout the campus, was a Teaching Assistant and competed in and won financial turn-around competitions. She has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Rochester, where she was a Rush Rhees scholar and Teaching Assistant. She is an active mentor for the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, working with six to eight students annually.
Sarah is based in New York City.
