Petraeus left the CIA in November after revelations about an extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell.

He’ll bring a vast personal network and knowledge of foreign affairs to KKR, where he’ll assist in areas such as public policy and emerging markets, according to the Journal.

Petraeus will work closely with Kenneth B. Mehlman, a KKR managing director who is a former chairman of the Republican National Committee.

KKR, formerly known as Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, is a private equity firm with investments around the globe. It has been publicly traded since 2010. Known for leveraged buyouts, it invests in health care, retail, technology and consumer products.
