KKR Boosts Ranks In Australia

Apr 9 2013 | 9:24am ET

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts has added Deutsche Bank's Diane Raposio to its team in Australia.

Raposio was named a managing director at the private equity giant and will handle both investor relations and capital markets activities. She was head of leverage debt capital markets for Australia and New Zealand at Deutsche Bank and formerly worked at Barclays, UBS and AMP.

Raposio is KKR's second major hire in Australia this year, following Leigh Oliver, who joined from the Carlyle Group as a principal.

"Private equity is not the form of capital that makes sense to everybody," Joseph Bae, managing partner of KKR Asia Pacific, said. "KKR is evolving in a way globally—and certainly in the Asia-Pacific—where we have the flexibility to work up and down a capital structure to provide solutions."

"Having Diane join KKR will enable us to provide those types of solutions.
