Statement on the Passing of Frank Carlucci


The Carlyle Group mourns the passing of Frank Carlucci, a great patriot, leader and friend. Just as he served America with passion and distinction for decades, Frank’s private sector career was remarkable as well. As Vice Chairman and then Chairman of Carlyle from 1989-2003, Frank was instrumental in transforming our boutique investment firm into a respected global institution. His wisdom, knowledge and stature helped us make smarter investments decisions and form fruitful relationships around the world. The blessings of his friendship and partnership will forever be a part of our hearts and firm. Our thoughts and prayers are with Marcia and all of Frank’s family and friends during these sad and difficult days.
