KKR Japan Nabs Goldman, McKinsey Vets

Mar 4 2013 | 12:16pm ET

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts has added a pair of directors to its Japanese office.

Hiro Shimizu has joined KKR Capital Markets and Sakae Suzuki KKR Capstone. The former comes from Goldman Sachs, where he was head of financial institutions in the Japanese financing group, and formerly worked as head of credit and alternative sales and head of distribution in Japan for its special-situations group. The latter joins from McKinsey & Co., where he focused on telecommunications, media and technology.

"We are pleased to welcome world-class talent like Hiro and Sakae to the KKR Japan team," KKR Japan CEO Shusaku Minoda said. "Hiro will use his extensive experience to expand the presence of KKR Capital Markets in Japan, while supporting and expanding our large and growing base of Japanese investors. As a member of the global KKR Capstone team, Sakae will apply his skills in operational improvement across a wide range of industries to support the growth of KKR investments in Japan and worldwide."

KKR is set to close a US$6 billion pan-Asia fund shortly.
