Global Head of Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets. “MIRA has been active
in the Americas for over 15 years. Graeme and Drew are joining us at a very
exciting time as we see a number of opportunities and areas where we can
continue to grow our Americas-based business. Drew and Graeme’s previous deal
