Global head, Macquarie Capital
Born in: Bishop grew up on the Victorian/NSW border
Home Town: Melbourne
As current global head of Macquarie Group's investment banking arm, Robin Bishop is another up-and-comer making the biggest deals happen.
He's young (just 40 years old) and is quickly building up a reputation for being at the centre of some of the country's biggest corporate deals.
Born and raised on the Victorian/NSW border, Bishop attended Melbourne University and Ormond College alongside Ben Gray and Christian Johnston during the auspicious early 1990s. And just like those two, Bishop is making his mark in the corporate world.
Bishop was the man at the centre of Wesfarmers mammoth $20 billion takeover of Coles. He was also involved in AXA's $14.6 billion merger with AMP. As Macquarie groans under the weight of its underperformance during the GFC, Bishop is becoming increasingly important as the rain-maker at the Millionaires' Factory.
We're tipping him to keep moving up and possibly become a contender for next year's list.
