Peter Lyneham, one of the founding members of Goldman Sachs Infrastructure Partners (GSIP), left the investment bank last month after 17 years. It is understood he left for family reasons.
He also served on the boards of Finnish electricity grid operator Elenia and Spanish gas distribution firm Redexis.
Goldman Sachs Infrastructure Partners launched the sale of Redexis at the end of last year and is expected to bring to market its stake in Elenia, which GSIP owns alongside 3i Infrastructure, in the coming months.
Besides covering energy subsectors, including energy distribution, he was also responsible for new investments and divestments.
Vice president Kunal Koya and managing director Matteo Botto Poala, also long-serving GSIP managers, will take over his responsibilities, according to a source.
The person added that GSIP is currently not looking to replace Lyneham.
Philippe Camu is the global head of the investment bank’s infrastructure team.
