Brennan will be responsible for leading Kohlberg’s fundraising, investor relations, communications and investment product strategies.
She was previously a managing director and head of client and product solutions at Onex Corp, and prior to that spent nine years as partner and managing director for IR and business development at Carlyle.
Kohlberg managing partner Sam Frieder said, “Jessica is one of the most well respected investor relations professionals in our industry and brings a wealth of experience, insight and innovation into our capital raising and strategic leadership to our firm.
“Jessica will enhance our ability to both serve our growing limited partner base and also attract new investors in an increasingly dynamic global environment.
“Her grounding ethos in transparent, long-term partnership-building with investors aligns directly with Kohlberg’s philosophy and we are delighted to welcome her to the firm.”
Kohlberg & Company, which was founded more than 35 years ago, soared to a $3.4bn final close for its ninth flagship fundraise in February last year.
Fund IX came in more than 50% larger than the firm’s predecessor vehicle, the $2.2bn Fund VIII raised in 2016.
