Carlyle Group Executive Shedding Continues

The Carlyle Group continues to lose executives.  Law firm Vinson and Elkins issued a press release today announcing:

Vinson & Elkins announced today that Todd Triller has rejoined the firm as a partner in the M&A practice in the New York office. Triller returns to Vinson & Elkins from The Carlyle Group, where he was Managing Director and Co-Head of Energy Credit.

Triller, who was a partner at Vinson & Elkins from 2011-2017 prior to joining The Carlyle Group, focuses on advising investment funds in complicated alternative finance transactions. He also has experience counseling private equity, credit funds and financial institutions in connection with a range of energy transactions, including renewables, sustainable fuels, power, midstream and upstream oil and gas.

“This is an incredible time to come back to Vinson & Elkins with the firm so well-positioned to help clients navigate the energy transition and infrastructure investments,” Triller said.

Six years was long enough at Carlyle for Mr. Triller.  He is the latest to leave the politically connected private equity underwriter (PEU).

Update 1-14-22:  Carlyle's search for a CEO to replace Kewsong Lee may be nearing a close.
