David Rubenstein, the co-founder and co-executive chair of the Carlyle Group, will give this year’s Tuck Investiture address on June 9.
In an email to the Tuck community, Matthew Slaughter, the Paul Danos Dean of the Tuck School, highlighted Rubenstein’s many accomplishments and shared well wishes to the outgoing class. “Investiture is a milestone unlike any other at Tuck—a time to reflect on and celebrate a learning journey for students that began two years ago and persists for life,” he said. “I am excited to celebrate with you on June 9 as together we send our newest class of wise leaders off into the world.”
Rubenstein co-founded the Carlyle Group in 1987. Since then, it has grown into one of the world’s largest private equity firms, with $174 billion under management in 31 offices across the globe. Prior to Carlyle, Rubenstein practiced law in Washington, D.C., and New York, and also had a thriving career in government. From 1975 to 1976, he served as chief counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Constitutional Amendments and later as deputy assistant to the president for domestic policy during the Carter Administration.
