Bain & Company’s Sebastien Lamy appointed as Asia Pacific co-head of Private Equity practice

SINGAPORE—January 18, 2023—Bain & Company announced today that Sebastien Lamy has been appointed as co-head of the firm’s Private Equity practice in Asia Pacific, effective January 1.

With over 20 years of consulting experience in the company, most of which in the Asia Pacific, Sebastien specializes in growth and portfolio strategy, fund strategy, M&A advisory and due diligence, and innovation. Most recently, he was leader of the region’s Infrastructure Investing practice.

Prior to joining Bain, Sebastien was managing director of Singapore-based Keppel Corporation, where he led group strategy, M&A, technology and innovation. He holds an MBA from INSEAD and an undergraduate degree from the HEC School of Management.

As the new co-head for Private Equity in Asia Pacific, Sebastien is responsible for implementing the strategy of Bain’s Private Equity practice in the region, business and client development as well as practice development. He will continue to be based in Tokyo in his new role.

Sebastien succeeds Andrew Tymms, who together with fellow co-head Kiki Yang, accelerated the growth of the Private Equity business and drove Bain to become Asia Pacific’s market leader in the industry.

“Sebastien has been a key driver of growth in Private Equity in Asia Pacific. He has also expanded Bain’s business particularly in Japan and Southeast Asia. I am excited at his appointment and look forward to his continued contribution as part of our leadership team in the region,” said Satish Shankar, Bain & Company’s Asia Pacific regional managing partner.

“The scale and complexity of the Private Equity practice calls for a seasoned and well-respected leader such as Sebastien. The Private Equity practice will continue to be a power-alley for us, with a shared mission, great commercial discipline, and cohesive teaming across the region. I am confident that Sebastien and Kiki will continue to bring the most-cutting edge best-of-Bain capabilities to our clients in Asia Pacific. I would also like to thank Andrew for his years of distinguished servant leadership and for the passion and contributions he has brought to this critical role,” said Rebecca Burack, head of Global Private Equity practice, Bain & Company.
