Beforehand, he led private credit fund due diligence at Albourne Partners, and before that worked in management consulting, most recently at Blue Ridge Partners, where he was focused on company-level due diligence for private equity clients.

Carlyle’s global credit platform resides within the Global Market Strategies segment, which had $34 billion in assets under management as of September 30, 2016, and has investment professionals in New York, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Chicago, Hong Kong and London.
