General (Ret) David H. Petraeus joined KKR in June 2013 as Chairman of the KKR Global Institute. He was made a Partner at KKR in December 2014. The Global Institute supports the KKR investment process and KKR's portfolio companies with analysis of geopolitical and security risks. He is also a member of the boards of directors of Optiv and OneStream, a personal venture capitalist, a Visiting Fellow and Lecturer at Yale University, a speaker with the Washington Speakers Bureau, and an Honorary Professor of Int'l Security at the University of Birmingham (UK).

Prior to joining KKR, Gen. Petraeus served over 37 years in the U.S. military, including tours in Cold War Europe, the US, Central America, Haiti, Bosnia, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the greater Middle East. He culminated his military career with six consecutive commands as a general officer, five of which were in combat, including Command of the Surge in Iraq, US Central Command, and Coalition and US Forces in Afghanistan. Following his military service, and after confirmation by the Senate by a vote of 94-0, Gen. Petraeus served as Director of the CIA, leading the Agency during a period that saw significant achievements in the global counter-terrorism effort and in increasing global human intelligence coverage.
