H.R.L. Morrison and Co appoint Australia and New Zealand co-heads

Global infrastructure investment managers, H.R.L. Morrison and Co, has appointed Peter Coman and Geoff Hutchinson as co-heads of Australia and New Zealand.

The hires follow the announcement that current head of Australia and New Zelaand, Paul Newfield, would replace the firm’s chief executive, Marko Bogoievski, taking effect on 1 January 2022.

Hutchinson joined Morrison and Co in October after 14 years at Pacific Equity Partners, where he was a managing director and led investments across a range of industries including healthcare, education and business services.

He also had experience working as board director for both private and listed firms.

Coman joined Morrison and Co in 2008 and had overseen infrastructure investments in Australia and New Zealand in the social infrastructure, renewable energy, healthcare and transport sectors.

Coman was currently chairperson of RetireAustralia, Pacific Radiology Group, Wellington International Airport Ltd and a director of NZX-listed Trustpower.

Paul Newfield, incoming chief executive, said: "Our Australasian portfolios form the bedrock on which our global expansion is being built.

“Over almost three decades we have built an outstanding track record in this region, and I’m delighted to have such high calibre investment professionals leading the investment team in our home markets."

Morrison and Co also appointed William Smales as chief investment officer, who would be responsible for driving a globally-consistent approach to investment, asset management and sustainability.

He joined the firm in 2013 and moved to New York in August this year.
