Jan Gabrynowicz, a former head of EMEA oil & gas project finance at Commonwealth Bank of Australia in London, has joined Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp.
Jan will be based in Sydney as a senior vice president in project finance funding energy and infrastructure, he confirmed to SparkSpread, a sister publication to Inframation.
Last year, Gabrynowicz returned to Australia from London as director in CBA’s infrastructure project finance group, as first reported by SparkSpread. He had led CBA’s EMEA oil and gas project finance team for three years before that.
He joined CBA as a vice president in its project finance group in 2006. Initially focused on infrastructure and natural resources, he subsequently moved into oil and gas.
Last September, CBA’s project finance group underwent a major reorganization that led to the departure of Nick Sankey, global head of project finance, and a number of other senior project finance executives.
