Carlyle Snags Former UBS Investment Banker

Mar 10 2008 | 10:26am ET

The Carlyle Group has named Olivier Sarkozy co-head and managing director of its global financial services group. He will be based in New York and begin his duties next month.

Sarkozy joins Carlyle from UBS, where he is joint global head of FIG Investment Banking. Prior to joining UBS in 2002, Sarkozy served in several senior capacities at First Boston beginning in 1993, including as head of the depository institutions group.

“Olivier is a remarkable addition to our financial services team,” David Rubenstein, Carlyle’s co-founder, said. “He has an incredible track record and network that will help Carlyle capitalize on the dislocation in the financial services sector and extend our record of success to this important and growing part of the global economy.”
