Our strategy focuses on developing core greenfield infrastructure projects in the US and Canada, primarily in the transportation, social, and water sectors. Our ability to execute our strategy lies in: (1) our connectivity to the key global and regional market players in the US market, based on our principals’ decades of relevant experience; and (2) our ability to think strategically, utilizing our combined technical abilities, industry knowledge, and comprehensive business insights to provide outstanding results for our partners.
Sharing one vision, we draw from our diverse experience, utilizing our unique talents and strengths to create value for our clients. There are several key factors that distinguish Star America Infrastructure Partners as a leader in investment strategy:
In 1979, Star America’s founder William A. Marino opened a local surety and insurance brokerage. Through his leadership and vision, that brokerage grew into the largest privately held construction broker in the United States, with over 20 offices in 16 cities, employing over 450 skilled team members, servicing the industries’ construction giants, and developing strong relationships with construction, insurance, and surety leaders.
His vision and innate understanding of market trends sparked an interest and desire to explore the global market and alternative delivery methods. His initiative led him to create a new entity; designed to support his clients in all aspects of their business – Star America.
Unique Connectivity Resulting in Proprietary Deal Sourcing
Star America Leadership team members have worked with many of the major contractors and concessionaires at the highest level in one respect or another. Over the years, this experience created strong ties enabling us to provide value to our consortium team members via deal creation and pipeline sourcing. Our experience is relevant and practical because we developed it over decades of involvement in specific infrastructure related, US based industries.
Star America’s team of professionals brings a wealth of industry experience, wisdom and results to every Star America client. Sharing one vision, our professionals work cohesively to implement prudent investment strategies in North America in order to provide returns for our clients.
Our Local and Regional Partnering Approach
Many funds look at infrastructure investment opportunities from a global perspective. But Star America utilizes a differentiated approach that originates from a long track record of partnering and working with US-based public owners and local private contractors and developers. We are a niche player focused on executing our strategy though partnering with experts who have had boots on the ground for decades - companies immersed in and understand the various local competitive dynamics.
