New York-based private equity firm Lightyear Capital has appointed Jerry W. Miller, former president and CEO of Van Kampen Investments, as senior advisor on behalf of its affiliated funds.

Prior to Van Kampen, Miller was a division director for Morgan Stanley’s Global Wealth Management Group and a member of its executive and operating committees. Before that, Miller spent 21 years at Merrill Lynch in various senior positions in both the investment and wealth management businesses.
