Global alternative asset management giant Carlyle Group has tapped managing directors Patrick McCarter and Campbell Dyer to co-lead the company’s global technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) team. 

The promotions are effective on September 1, the company said in a statement. They succeed long-term TMT head James Attwood, Jr. in the role, who will reportedly continue as a managing director on the TMT team and maintain service on a number of Carlyle portfolio company boards. 

Dyer is based in Washington, DC and has been with Carlyle for fifteen years, while McCarter is based in Menlo Park, CA and joined the firm in 2001. 

Carlyle’s TMT team makes buyout and growth capital investments in a range of large and medium-sized TMT and business services companies on a global basis, the statement added. TMT is a core area of focus for the Carlyle, representing more than $24 billion of invested equity in companies, and was a core factor in the company’s decision to ppen the Menlo Park office in September 2015.

Prior to joining Carlyle, Dyer was an investment professional at William Blair Capital Partners and an investment banker at Bowles Hollowell Connor & Co. McCarter was an investment banker with Morgan Stanley before coming aboard Carlyle.

Founded in 1987 by David Rubenstein, Bill Conway and Dan D’Aniello, Carlyle has $162 billion of assets under management across 287 investment vehicles as of March 31, 2017, deployed across global Corporate Private Equity, Real Assets, Global Market Strategies and Investment Solutions opportunities.
