Greenhill VP joins Campbell Lutyens

Campbell Lutyens worked on $12.5bn of deals last year including five single-asset restructurings, two strip sales and two preferred equity deals.

A vice-president with Greenhill has made the five-minute walk across Mayfair to a sell-side rival.

Yannick Mir joined the London office of Campbell Lutyens as a vice-president last week, he confirmed to Secondaries Investor. He said he was looking forward to the intellectual challenge of working on GP-led deals and across different asset classes such as infrastructure and credit.

Mir joined Greenhill as an associate in 2017, becoming a vice-president in January 2019, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Greenhill is rebuilding its team following the departures this autumn of seven managing directors. Mir’s departure is not linked to any of these moves, Secondaries Investor understands.

Last week Secondaries Investor reported that Greenhill managing director Brian Mooney was to join former colleagues Stephen Sloan and Michael Song at Portfolio Advisors to help lead a GP-led secondaries investment programme.

Mooney left Greenhill at the same time as fellow MDs Todd Miller, Andy Nick and Chris Bonfield, who follow former colleagues Brenlen Jinkens and Scott Beckelman to Jefferies, which in September launched a secondaries advisory unit.

Campbell Lutyens worked on $12.5 billion of deals last year including five single-asset restructurings, two strip sales and two deals involving preferred equity, according to the Secondaries Investor Advisory Survey 2020.

Deals the firm has advised on this year include a €200 million restructuring involving European life sciences manager Medicxi, which was co-anchored by Pantheon and LGT Capital Partners.

Greenhill declined to comment.
