KKR names Suzanne Donohoe as its new global head of strategic growth


Private equity giant KKR has just promoted Suzanne Donohoe to the take on the new role of global head of strategic growth.

In her new role, Donohoe will focus on building new businesses for the firm and growing KKR’s longstanding strategic investor partnerships that involve some of the largest global institutions in the world. She will also work closely with KKR’s co-CEOs and co-presidents on strategy for KKR.

“As we reflected on KKR’s last ten years of growth, and the addition of 20 new businesses during that time, we decided we needed to add a leader fully dedicated to our next set of new businesses and the strategies around them,” said Henry Kravis and George Roberts, co-founders and co-CEO of KKR.

“Suzanne was a natural choice. She is a proven business builder who has helped shape what KKR is today, and we look forward to working with her even more closely in this new role.”

Donohoe joined KKR in 2009 to lead KKR’s client and partner group, a global team responsible for supporting and interacting with KKR’s Limited Partners.

Under her leadership, the team raised over $225bn from a global client base. Today, the group supports 24 investment strategies and has reportedly more than quadrupled the number of clients KKR serves during the same period.
