Baron Léon Lambert was a financier, art collector and a member of the Bilderberg Steering Committee.
He was the great-grandson of Baron James de Rothschild and the great-great-grandson of Samuel Lambert, who established the family-owned Banque Lambert in 1840. It merged with Banque de Bruxelles (run by 9 times Bilderberger Louis Camu) in 1974, forming Banque Bruxelles Lambert, one of Belgium's largest banks.
In the 1970s Lambert invested in William D. Witter, a Wall Street research company. In 1976, the Drexel Burnham Group merged with Lambert's holding company, Lambert Brussels Witter, to create the Drexel Burnham Lambert Group, of which he was chairman.
Leon Lambert died on Thursday 28 May 1987, aged 58, having reportedly gone into cardiac arrest 10 days before and "lapsed into a coma from which he never emerged, according to officials of Drexel Burnham Lambert, the Wall Street investment firm in which he had an interest."
