London (July 8, 2024) – Campbell Lutyens is pleased to announce the appointment of Gordon Bajnai as CEO, effective 1 September 2024.

Andrew will become Chairman of Campbell Lutyens, while John Campbell, one of the founders of the firm, will continue as Emeritus Chairman.

Gordon has been with Campbell Lutyens for 13 years, initially as an Advisory Director before joining the firm in an executive capacity in 2017. He took over responsibility for the firm’s global infrastructure and energy transition practice in 2019, building on the firm’s market leading position in the sector.

During his career, he has served on the Investment Committee of the European Fund for Strategic Investments, acted as Chairman of Budapest Airport and been an advisor for Antin Infrastructure, Aegon Insurance, and a director for Rába plc and Zwack Unicum plc. Gordon is currently a member of the Board of Directors at the Pacific Pension Institute, Vice Chairman of the Board of GlobSec and a member of the European Council on Foreign Relations.

“We are very pleased and excited to have Gordon take over as CEO, to lead the next stage of growth of our global business,” said Andrew Sealey. “We continue to strongly believe in the future expansion and development of private capital markets, where Campbell Lutyens plays a leading role in capital formation and advisory services to GPs and LPs.”
