Guillermo Marroquin, who has rejoined the firm from Macquarie, will lead origination activities and manage relationships.

Campbell Lutyens has appointed a former employee as its head of North American real assets.

Guillermo Marroquin, who was a principal at the advisory firm and placement agent between 2010 and 2013, will be responsible for key relationships and origination activities across infrastructure and real assets in North America, according to a statement.

He came from Macquarie Infrastructure & Real Assets, where he spent four years and was the managing director responsible for investor relations, product development and fund marketing strategy in infrastructure, agriculture, energy and real estate.

Marroquin previously held fixed income and distressed debt roles at BNY Capital Markets, JPMorgan and Lehman Brothers.

“The depth of Guillermo’s experience in the infrastructure and energy sectors and his extensive relationships will be critical as we further develop Campbell Lutyens’ offering and footprint in North America,” said chief executive Andrew Sealey in the statement.
