H.I.G. Capital, a global alternative investment firm with $56 billion of equity capital under management, expanded its dedicated infrastructure team with the addition of John Bruen. He will join as a managing director in H.I.G.’s London office on Aug. 1.

Bruen has more than 20 years of both investment and operating experience in the infrastructure industry. He joins H.I.G. from Macquarie Asset Management, where he spent nearly 10 years, most recently as senior managing director and head of transport for EMEA. Prior to Macquarie, Bruen spent eight years at Ferrovial as corporate development director, where he played a key role in their industrial group’s expansion into the airports sector.

“We are delighted to welcome John to the firm,” Andrew Liau and Ed Pallesen, co-heads of H.I.G. Infrastructure said in a joint statement. “As a well-known industry veteran, John has demonstrated his ability to create meaningful value through all stages of the investment life cycle. John complements the existing team well, deepening our expertise in transport and transport-related areas.”
