CPPIB taps Arizona Coyotes owner for energy role

Canada Pension Plan Investment Board has named Avik Dey, the energy investor who co-owns the Arizona Coyotes hockey team, head of its oil and gas program.

Dey, who founded private equity firm Remvest Energy Partners LLC in 2011 and has served as chief financial officer of the Coyotes since helping bail out the team last year, will join Canada’s largest pension manager on Sept. 15, Linda Sims, the fund’s spokeswoman, said in an e-mail.
