- Private equity giant Carlyle has just promoted 32 people to associate and 39 to managing director.
- A quarter of the promotions were women, traditionally underrepresented on Wall Street.
- The list includes 8 real estate executives, 8 US buyout executives and one focused on DEI.
These 71 Carlyle leaders have plenty to be thankful for this holiday season.
The Washington, D.C.-based buyout firm, which has $369 billion in assets, has promoted 32 of its 2,100 employees to partner status, the highest status anyone can get at the company. . Some 39 other employees were named chief executive, also on Tuesday.
The annual promotion process is a closely watched rite of passage on Wall Street, as it tends to signal who the biggest earners and most powerful players are. Goldman Sachs kicked off the process earlier this month by promoting 80 people to partner status, its highest class since 2016.
Carlyle’s promotions took place in 26 of its 29 offices around the world and will take effect on January 1. Its three main business segments were represented, including global private equity, global credit and global investment solutions, according to a spokesperson. About 25% of promotions were women and 4% came from underrepresented groups, the spokesperson said.
This year’s group included eight real estate executives, two working on human capital and one focused on DEI, or diversity, equity and inclusion. Interestingly, Kara Helander, Carlyle’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Manager, helped develop and implement a new set of criteria for evaluating employees eligible for promotion at Caryle. The company, under Helander, has also made efforts to link executive compensation and employee bonuses to diversity goals.
The list includes three European buyout leaders and eight US buyout leaders, including Tanaka Maswoswe, who leads buyouts in the industrials and transportation sectors, and was included in a 2021 Insider list highlighting some of the top investors of the company.
