Carlyle Group Names New CFO

By julie steinberg

The Carlyle Group appointed Adena Friedman chief financial officer, managing director and member of the operating group, the private-equity fund announced today. She will replace Peter Nachtwey, who departed for Legg Mason in December.

Friedman, 41, will assume her duties on March 28 and will be based in Washington, D.C. She is joining the firm from NASDAQ, where she was chief financial officer and executive vice president for corporate strategy. She will report to the firm's co-founders, William Conway, David Rubenstein and Daniel D'Aniello.

In a statement, D'Aniello said that Friedman's strategic planning and cross-border M&A experience would be useful to the firm as it expands its global platform. At NASDAQ, she led the company's acquisition of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange as well as the OMX Group, a company that runs exchanges in Northern Europe.

Friedman joined NASDAQ in 1993, where she also served as director of product management for several trading-related products.

She graduated with a bachelors degree in political science from Williams College and a masters in business administration from Vanderbilt.
