Jay Fishman has resigned as a member of the Board of Directors of alternative asset manager Carlyle Group Management, effective 27 October, 2015.
Fishman had served as a board member since Carlyle’s initial public offering in May 2012. His resignation is due to previously announced health issues.
The Carlyle Group has named Anthony Welters, Executive Chairman of the Black Ivy Group, and Senior Adviser to the Office of the CEO of UnitedHealth Group, as an independent director.
“Jay played an invaluable role on our Board of Directors over the last several years,” says Daniel A. D’Aniello, Chairman of The Carlyle Group. “His wisdom, judgment and keen insights have benefited management and our unitholders as we transitioned to being a public company. We will miss his leadership and are deeply grateful for his guidance and service.”
“We are excited to welcome Tony as a member of our Board of Directors. He had the vision and foresight to found AmeriChoice in 1989 and has continued to serve as a leader in the business community. His significant leadership experience will add a valuable perspective to our Board of Directors,” says David Rubenstein, Co-Chief Executive Officer of The Carlyle Group. “We appreciate his willingness to serve as a director and we look forward to benefiting from his judgment and counsel.”
