Private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. has hired three senior executives. 

David Sorkin, a longtime advisor to KKR during his tenure at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, will become a member of the firm and its general counsel. Robert Gottlieb, who spent nearly 20 years at Goldman Sachs in senior human resource management and administrative functions, has been named chief human resources officer. And Edward Brandman, an experienced technology executive, joined KKR as chief information officer responsible for global technology and information strategy.

“Our more than 400 employees in seven offices around the world are capitalizing on a diverse and exciting range of investment opportunities as a global alternative asset manager,” stated co-founders Henry Kravis and George Roberts. “As we continue to grow our talent pool and expand our activities, a strong corporate infrastructure of senior executives will help support our global development and value creation for our investors.”

KKR was established in 1976 and has offices in New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.
