October 7, 2021 | John Melendez

Lincoln International, a global investment banking advisory firm, has appointed two of its long-time leaders into new roles, effective immediately. Rob Brown has been named global chief executive officer of the firm and Eric Malchow becomes CEO North America.

“This long-planned transition of both global and North American leadership comes at an exciting time for Lincoln,” stated Jim Lawson, chairman and general partner of Lincoln International. “In 2021, we celebrate our 25th anniversary having grown from one office with four people to 22 offices in 16 countries with over 700 professionals. Rob and Eric have been instrumental to the successes we have achieved since our earliest days and are well-positioned to lead the firm’s vision, strategy and culture. They are committed to driving aggressive growth for the foreseeable future.”

“I am honored to lead Lincoln’s next stage of growth and success,” said Brown. “Our people, platform and culture are truly unique in the industry and there is tremendous excitement internally and among our clients about the work we are doing. I am looking forward to continuing to invest in ideas, solutions and talent while inspiring our people to make a positive impact on each other, our clients and our communities.”

“Lincoln’s North American business has been on an impressive trajectory and I am looking forward to our future, collective achievements,” said Malchow. “Our U.S. team of more than 400 talented individuals is an industry-leading group of insightful, committed and collaborative professionals who prioritize client outcomes and excellence. The key to the continued success of our North American operations and the firm overall is our people’s access to development and career opportunities that support their own professional goals.”

Managing director and general partner Rob Barr stated, “Lincoln’s great momentum in recent years and very promising future makes now the appropriate time for the transition to new leadership to occur. We have great confidence in both Rob and Eric’s capabilities and dedication to Lincoln, its people and clients. Jim and I look forward to continuing to contribute to the very bright future of the firm.”
