Lincoln International Expands Senior Management Team by Promoting Rob Brown and Eric Malchow to Co-Presidents of Lincoln – North America
Lincoln International, a leading global mid-market investment bank, has announced the promotion of Rob Brown and Eric Malchow to Co-Presidents of Lincoln International – North America. As Co-Presidents, Rob and Eric will provide strategic direction for Lincoln International while continuing to play a lead role in executing M&A transactions for mid-market companies and financial sponsors.
With a staff of over 200 investment bankers globally, Lincoln International is a leading provider of M&A, debt advisory, restructuring, and valuation services to mid-market companies and financial sponsors around the world. During the last year, the firm expanded its global footprint by opening new offices in Moscow, Russia, and Mumbai, India. With the addition of these new offices, the firm now has 12 offices in the Americas, Asia and Europe including: Amsterdam, Chicago, Frankfurt, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Moscow, Mumbai, New York, Paris, Tokyo and Vienna. In 2011, the firm also expanded its advisory capabilities with the addition of debt advisory capability in Europe to complement an existing North American-based debt advisory capability.
Lincoln International’s growth initiatives have proven successful. Lincoln International closed over 100 transactions worldwide in 2011, making it the #1 ranked (by number of deals) mid-market, independent, integrated M&A advisor in the world.
Rob Barr, Chief Executive Officer of Lincoln – North America, commented “Lincoln is committed to continuing to build the leading mid-market investment bank with the ability to provide a full suite of advisory services to mid-market companies and financial sponsors. An important element of executing our growth strategy is to have highly talented senior management team members helping to guide the organization through its next stage of development. Having Rob Brown and Eric Malchow in these expanded leadership roles will help us continue to build our business with a focus on providing exceptional service to our clients worldwide.”
Robert Brown, Co-Head of the Global Business Services Group and a veteran of Lincoln International for more than 14 years said, “I look forward to continuing to drive the global franchise value of Lincoln International. While we have grown our investment banking staff by over 40% in the past two years, I truly believe that we are just hitting the steep part of our growth curve. Many of our substantial investments in talent, industry expertise, expanded service offerings and geographical footprint are just now starting to mature. While these initiatives are important, our unique culture will continue to remain our most guarded asset.”
Eric Malchow, a co-founder of Lincoln in 1996 and Co-Head of the Global Industrial Group added, “I am excited to be playing a larger role in the strategic direction of Lincoln International. Since we started Lincoln with one office in Chicago in 1996, we’ve grown to a truly international organization with 12 offices around the world. Our global footprint has produced tangible benefits to our clients as over half of our deals last year were cross border. Even with our tremendous growth, there remain many opportunities for us to continue to gain market share."
Jim Lawson, Chairman of Lincoln International said, “Our strategy is one of growth, not for growth’s sake, but to offer best-in-class services to our clients and to provide team culture to our employees. We are confident that this new, expanded organizational structure will enable us to strategically grow our business while providing our clients with superior service.”
