Hakluyt is delighted to announce that Varun Chandra has been re-elected as managing partner, and will serve a second three-year term.

Lord Paul Deighton KBE, Hakluyt’s chairman, commented: “Varun received an overwhelming majority of nominations for managing partner, which is a clear endorsement of the outstanding leadership he has given the firm over the past three years. Revenues and profits have grown considerably since he was first elected three years ago, and the company is well placed to achieve even greater success during his second term. The whole board and I congratulate Varun on his re-election, and look forward to giving him and his colleagues every support in continuing to build for the future.”

Varun added: “I am thrilled to have been re-elected managing partner. It is a privilege to lead such an excellent team at Hakluyt, and I am extremely proud of what we have achieved together over the past three years. We are working more closely than ever with many of the world’s most admired corporations and most respected investors – advising them across a broad spectrum of commercial issues including M&A, senior hires, and digital resilience. We have opened new offices across the US and in the Middle East, and have welcomed many brilliant new colleagues. This has delivered record profits and revenues, and I am very excited by the opportunities we have to grow our business further in the years to come.”
