Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets appoints Stéphane Brimont as Head of France and Benelux

London, 22 Mar 2016

Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) has appointed Stéphane Brimont, Head of France and Benelux, based in Paris.

Stéphane will be the head of MIRA’s business in France and Benelux and will assume several board positions in connection with MIRA’s existing assets (including APRR Group, Pisto / CIM-CCMP and Brussels Airport) as well as identifying new development opportunities. Stephane’s appointment follows the recent departure of Bruno Angles, MIRA’s Head of France since 2007.

Stéphane was most recently at GDF SUEZ, where he was Chief Operating Officer Energy Europe. Having graduated as an Engineer from the Ecole Polytechnique and the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées, he initially joined the French Administration where he spent a total of eight years, five of which were centred on infrastructure and transport, within the Ministry for Economy and Finance. In 2002, he became advisor for budget matters to the Prime Minister where he spent two years. In 2004, he joined Gaz de France initially as Chief Strategy Officer and then appointed CFO in 2007. Following the successful merger of Gaz de France and Suez, Stéphane moved into a general management role, working across thermal, nuclear and renewable energy technologies and holding responsibility for marketing and sales, generation and infrastructure assets throughout Europe.

Edward Beckley, Head of MIRA in EMEA, commented: "Stéphane is a high calibre senior leader who brings a wealth of experience in infrastructure markets within corporate and government environments as well as significant experience in European energy transactions. He will assume leadership of our well-established franchise in France, working with our current and future strategic investments."

"We also thank Bruno for his strong leadership of MIRA France over the past nine years and are pleased that Bruno will maintain his relationship with MIRA by joining the MEIF Advisory Panel. We look forward to continuing working with Bruno in this capacity."

Commenting on his appointment, Stéphane said: "I’m looking forward to joining MIRA with its well-established reputation as a fast moving, entrepreneurial organisation with a clear commitment to expand its real asset investments."
