Jason Thomas is joining The Carlyle Group in the next few weeks after nearly three years at the Private Equity Growth Capital Council, serving most recently as vice president of research, peHUB has learned.

Thomas is slated to become director of research at Carlyle, where he will be the first to hold that position, according to spokesman Christopher W. Ullman. He will report to David M. Marchick, who is managing director and global head of external affairs, a group that handles communications and government relations for the firm.
