Richard Campbell-Breeden, who joined Goldman Sachs in 1989 in the mergers and acquisitions team in New York, is leaving the firm, according to the September 19 memo. The memo was signed by Goldman Sachs’s global co-heads of investment banking Richard Gnodde, David Solomon and John Waldron.
Campbell-Breeden was co-head of UK investment banking from 1999 to 2005, but has since held various senior roles in Asia, before recently relocating to London to focus on senior client coverage in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Before returning to London, Campbell-Breedon was vice chairman of the investment banking division in Asia Pacific, ex-Japan, and chairman of the M&A group in the region.
Campbell-Breeden joined Goldman Sachs in 1989 in the M&A department in New York. He was named managing director in 1998 and partner in 2000.
Gnodde, Solomon and Waldron wrote in the memo: “During his tenure at the firm, Richard has played a central role in growing our client franchise across regions and industries, and has been instrumental in building key client relationships and our position as a market leader.”
