Kohlberg Kravis Roberts has hired Bush Administration insider Kenneth Mehlman as managing director and head of global public affairs, a new position. The former Republican National Committee chairman will focus on outreach to stakeholders and portfolio companies, including relationships with governments, third-parties and non-governmental organizations.
Mehlman is currently a partner at Washington lobbying group Akin Gump Strauss Hauer. In addition to leading the RNC, he served as campaign manager of President George W. Bush's re-election campaign.
“We have been increasingly engaged with a wide range of constituents in recent years,” said KKR co-founding members Henry Kravis and George Roberts. “As we continue to communicate the public benefits of private equity, Ken is a wonderful addition to our executive team, allowing us to expand and institutionalize our outreach to key groups across our portfolio.”
