REPORT: Former US Commander David Petraeus May Be Joining A PE Firm

APValleywag’s Nitasha Tiku reports former U.S. forces commander David Petraeus has been talking to private equity firms about joining their ranks.

From Tiku:

He has been making the rounds at a number of New York-based venture capital and private equity firms and one very knowledgeable source said Petraeus is slated to announce a relationship shortly.

The source wouldn’t name the firm, but someone familiar with the deal pointed us toward the private equity sector and KKR & Co in particular. Petraeus has also spoken with the Carlyle Group.

After serving as lead officer in Iraq and then Afghanistan, Petraeus worked as CIA director for a little over a year. He resigned in November over an extramarital affair.

Tiku says a formal announcement will be coming “shortly.”
