Robin Budenberg

Chairman, London
Robin Budenberg joined Centerview Partners in 2014 to build Centerview’s client base in Europe and to provide advice to Centerview’s clients, both US and European, in European situations. Since joining Centerview, Robin has advised on a number of transactions, including SABMiller on the increased $100 billion bid from ABInBev, Informa on its acquisition of UBM and Henderson on its merger with Janus.

Robin spent 25 years with S.G. Warburg/UBS Investment Bank. During that time Robin advised many of the UK’s largest companies on major strategic transactions, including takeovers and hostile defences. He also advised on the formation of a number of industry leading entities involving cross-border mergers. Robin advised the UK Government on a range of issues including transport, energy, infrastructure and the Royal Mail.

In 2008, Robin advised the UK Government on the £300 billion bailout of the UK banking industry. In 2009, he became Chief Executive, then Chairman, of UK Financial Investments (UKFI), the body responsible for managing the UK Government’s £100 billion investment in the UK banking industry. Robin led UKFI during a four-year period of unprecedented public and policy scrutiny of the banking industry, promoting the commercial interests of the banks in the context of the broader taxpayer interest.

Robin is Chairman of The Crown Estate which manages property and other assets worth $20 billion with annual profits returned to HM Treasury for the benefit of the UK’s public finances. He is also a Non-Executive Director of Big Society Trust and Charity Bank.

In 2015, Robin was appointed CBE for services to the taxpayer and the economy.

Robin holds a degree in Law from Exeter University and qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Price Waterhouse.
