Craig Decker joins BGL from Headhaul Capital Partners, a transportation and logistics focused merchant bank

Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL) has added Craig Decker to its team as a managing director within its services vertical. Mr. Decker will be based in BGL’s New York City office.

Prior to joining BGL and since December 2018, Mr. Decker was a managing director at Headhaul Capital Partners, a Greenwich, Connecticut-based merchant banking firm specializing in the transportation and logistics sector. In July 2018, Mr. Decker founded CMD Advisory, a provider of advisory and private capital services to public and private companies operating in the transportation industry. From 2012 to 2018, he was the head of investment banking at New York City-based Wolfe Capital Markets & Advisory, the broker-dealer affiliate of transportation and logistics sector focused Wolfe Research. Mr. Decker has his undergraduate degree from Villanova University and his MBA from New York University.

The hiring of Mr. Decker follows the July 2022 addition of Eliott Musick from Macquarie Capital where he led the firm’s industrial and infrastructure services practice.

“On the heels of Eliott Musick joining our services vertical to lead our facility and field services business, Craig expands our ongoing efforts within infrastructure services through his impressive career in transportation, logistics, and supply chain,” said Effram Kaplan, the head of BGL’s services vertical and lead within its environmental and industrial services business. “Craig enables us to scale our knowledge and skills across our client base and bring additional ideas and opportunities to the market. We are very pleased to welcome him to BGL and excited about the additional resources we can offer our clients.”

“BGL has demonstrated impressive growth over the past several years,” said Mr. Decker. “I’m thrilled to be joining a team of this caliber and look forward to adding to the momentum of the firm’s expansion in New York City and beyond.”
