iCON Infrastructure appoints Macleod

iCON Infrastructure, the independent investment firm focused on investments in core infrastructure in Europe and North America, has appointed Iain Macleod as a partner, with effect from July 2012.  

Macleod joins the iCON team that has led private institutional investment in European infrastructure since the early 2000s and has been responsible for over EUR2.5 billion of institutional investment in mature infrastructure assets over the past decade.

Macleod has two decades of corporate finance and infrastructure experience. He joins from Deutsche Bank where he spent over 11 years in roles including Head of Transportation and Infrastructure for EMEA and Head of M&A for Asia. He has led a number of landmark transactions including DP World’s GBP5.2 billion acquisition of P&O, the USD5.5 billion IPO of Hutchison Ports Trust, the USD4.2 billion IPO of DP World and the recent USD1.4 billion sale of Maersk LNG.

Paul Malan, Senior Partner of iCON, says: “Having worked closely with our team over many years on successful investments such as Grup Maritim TCB and Porterbrook, we know that Iain will add significant value to iCON’s investment activities.  Iain’s strong relationships and transaction experience promise to enhance further iCON’s proven ability to source and execute attractive infrastructure investments for our investment partners.  He will also play a key role in the management of our business as we continue to build on our recent successes.”

Macleod says: “There is a requirement for huge private sector investment in infrastructure globally and at the same time strong interest from long-term investors attracted to the stable returns of core infrastructure assets. I look forward to playing an active role in growing iCON’s business through sourcing, executing and managing the significant opportunities that exist and delivering attractive returns to iCON’s investors.”
