Carlyle hires chief information officer

At a time of increasing data complexity, the mega private equity firm hired T. Rowe Price executive Georgette Kiser to lead its global informational technology group.

The Carlyle Group appointed Georgette Kiser to managing director and chief information officer (CIO). She will start on February 2 and be based in Washington, DC.

As Carlyle CIO, Kiser will lead the firm’s global information technology group, developing and driving the IT strategy across the global enterprise, which includes the firm’s application development, data, digital, infrastructure, and program management and outsourcing activities. She will also join the firm’s management committee. 

Kiser joins Carlyle from T. Rowe Price Group, where she was vice president and director of enterprise solutions and capabilities for services and technology.

“[Kiser] brings a track record of success in designing and implementing technology solutions that support critical investor, business and regulatory needs,” said Carlyle co-presidents and co-chief operating officers Mike Cavanaugh and Glenn Youngkin in a statement. “Technology is a long-standing priority at Carlyle and Georgette will help us build on our strong foundation.”

Kiser joined T. Rowe Price in 1996 and served in a variety of senior roles, including data architect, project manager, vice president for global business solutions, and emerging solutions manager for investments.
