FREMONT, CA: Global investment firm KKR promoted Suzanne Donohoe to new positions as its first Global Head of Strategic Growth. Eric Mogelof will succeed Ms. Donohoe and join KKR as a Partner and Global Head of KKR's Client and Partner Group. Under the new portfolio, Donohoe will be charged with building new businesses for the firm and growing KKR's longstanding strategic investor partnerships involving some of the world's largest global institutions. Suzanne will also be working closely with KKR's Co-Chief Executive Officers 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. 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," stated Henry Kravis and George Roberts, Co-Founders and Co-Chief Executive Officers of KKR.
Suzanne joined the company in 2009 to lead the Client and Partner Group, a global team tasked with supporting and interacting with KKR's Limited Partners. Since then, Donohoe and her team have raised over USD 225 billion from a global client base. The group now supports 24 investment strategies, and it has more than quadrupled the number of clients KKR serves during the same period. During this time, Donohoe also led the building of a USD 15 billion business to support multi-decade strategic investor partnerships. She has also sponsored a new business offering customized portfolios for clients seeking investments across the alternative asset management landscape.
"At KKR, we take our mission of performing for our clients very seriously and Suzanne has always ensured we are delivering the firm for them. She has been an exemplary ambassador for KKR, instilling the confidence and trust of our clients and anyone with whom we do business. In the new role, she will partner with the four of us on new growth initiatives and continue to find innovative ways to work with our largest clients," Joe Bae and Scott Nuttall, Co-Presidents and Co-Chief Operating Officers of KKR added. Since 2018, Donohoe has served as Co-Chair of KKR's Inclusion and Diversity Council, advancing one of its strategic priorities. She will maintain this responsibility in her new role.
