KKR Searches for IR Chief

KKR has restarted its search for an investor relations chief (shareholder-facing, not LP-facing), peHUB has learned. Heidrick & Struggles has been retained to do the looking.

This search actually began last year, but got suspended due to KKR’s IPO delays. Now that the firm is scheduled to list in Europe next month and in New York next spring, the pursuit has resumed. The position’s org chart position hasn’t been formalized, but the IR chief will report, at least in part, to public affairs chief Ken Mehlman.
