The Carlyle Group Names Macky Tall Co-Chair of its Infrastructure Group

December 7, 2020, New York, NY – Global investment firm The Carlyle Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CG) today announced that Macky Tall will join the firm as Co-Chair of Carlyle’s Infrastructure Group, which includes efforts across transportation, renewables, energy, water & waste water and digital infrastructure.

In this role, Tall, together with Co-Chair Brooke Coburn, will lead Carlyle’s Infrastructure platform and drive expansion into new strategies, working closely with Pete Taylor and Pooja Goyal, Co-Heads of the Carlyle Global Infrastructure Opportunity Fund (CGI).  Goyal, who joined Carlyle in 2019, is also Head of Renewable and Sustainable Energy.  Tall will serve on several investment committees across the firm and join Carlyle at the end of the first quarter in 2021, reporting to CEO Kewsong Lee.

“Macky is one of the most seasoned and well-respected executives in the entire global infrastructure industry, and we are delighted to welcome him to Carlyle,” said Kewsong Lee. “We see tremendous opportunity in infrastructure given the growing demand for private capital for essential assets, and look forward to benefiting from his deep expertise and decades of investing experience in all aspects of this sector as we drive this important platform forward.” 

“Carlyle’s strong brand and business are well established worldwide, and I am excited to join the team to identify opportunities across the infrastructure spectrum and create value for investors,” said Macky Tall.  

Tall will join the firm following a distinguished career in global infrastructure investing. From 2004-2020, he served in a series of leadership positions at Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ), one of the world’s largest infrastructure investors and the second largest pension fund in Canada with approximately CA$333 billion in assets under management as of June 30. Most recently, he served as head of Real Assets and Private Equity responsible for infrastructure, international private equity, financing solutions and global research. He also served as President and CEO of CDPQ Infra, which plans, finances, executes, owns, and operates public infrastructure projects, including the largest public transit project within the Greater Montréal area in the last 50 years -- the light metro system known as REM.

Tall also served on CDPQ’s Executive Committee and Investment-Risk Committee and served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Ivanhoé Cambridge, CDPQ’s world-class real estate subsidiary. Tall also sits on the Board of Directors of The Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montréal and is a member of the Infrastructure Advisory Board of Global Affairs Canada and the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund Investments Committee.
