Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ:CG) announced today that Kewsong Lee will join the firm as Deputy Chief Investment Officer for Corporate Private Equity.

Kew will be a great addition to this team and will play a critical role in helping us ensure the platform we have created continues to make superb investments and create value for our investors.”

Mr. Lee said, “It is an honor to have the chance to join one of the industry’s most successful buyout platforms and to work with Bill and his team. This is an exciting time in Carlyle’s history and I am eager to learn and contribute. After 21 wonderful years at Warburg Pincus, I wish my colleagues all the best.”

As Deputy CIO, Mr. Lee will assist Mr. Conway in a range of activities related to investing and managing Carlyle’s Corporate Private Equity platform, which consists of 11 buyout and growth capital funds totaling $58 billion in assets under management.
