Kim, pictured, will become head of IR at Kelso according to Buyouts, which quoted a spokesperson from Court Square.
Kelso is currently in the market to raise between $2.5bn and $3bn according to a report last week by Bloomberg, well below the $5.1bn it gathered for its eight flagship vehicle in 2008.
Court Square finished fundraising for a $3bn vehicle last year, comparable to the $3.1bn it gathered for its second fund in 2007.
Kim joined the Court Square investment team in 2004 and most recently headed investor relations, co-investment syndication and marketing.
He was previously a partner at Capital Z Investments and a senior fundraiser for JP Morgan’s placement team.
