Bob Young leaves Macquarie

The New York-based dealmaker behind Macquarie Infrastructure Company’s purchase of a 50% interest in International-Matex Tank Terminals left the firm sometime in December.

Bob Young, a managing director at Macquarie Capital in New York, is no longer with the firm.

A person familiar with his departure confirmed that he left the firm in December but declined to comment further.

While at Macquarie, Young advised on numerous infrastructure and infrastructure-related deals, including Macquarie Infrastructure Company’s $250 million purchase of a 50 percent interest in International-Matex Tank Terminals, a bulk liquid storage business in US and Canada, in 2006.

People familiar with his work at Macquarie described him as an independent-minded dealmaker who closed transactions at a steady clip. The circumstances of his departure are unclear.

Young did not return a call for comment.
