"Stan and Sharon are both long-time KKR executives and seasoned professionals with deep relationships across their respective geographies,” said Robert Antablin and Ken Mehlman, Co-Heads of KKR Global Impact. “This combination of KKR’s global strength and local market expertise is key to capturing the many opportunities we’re seeing for impact investments around the globe. These additions further underscore our commitment to growing KKR Global Impact in Europe and Asia. We are thrilled to welcome Stan and Sharon to our team."
Ming Lu, Member & Head of KKR Asia Pacific, said, “Asia Pacific has become a compelling destination for impact investment driven by the structural policy changes and reforms across the region combined with increased public awareness and corporate adoption of environmental, social and governance initiatives. Emerging markets are leading the way – homegrown champions are developing innovative products and services to meet sustainable development opportunities resulting from rapid urbanization and a growing middle class. As we look to expand the reach of our impact investment strategy in Asia and provide funding to more businesses and entrepreneurs, we are delighted to have an investment executive of Sharon’s caliber to help lead our efforts."
