Retired Gen. David Petraeus to join investment firm

Retired Gen. David H. Petraeus, who resigned last year as CIA director due to revelations of an affair, has landed a new job.

Petraeus will become the chairman of the newly created KKR Global Institute, an initiative of the Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Company investment firm.

According to a release issued by the firm, the KKR Global Institute will "further build on the firm's efforts to help KKR's portfolio companies expand globally, and it will periodically serve as an outlet for publishing the firm's thought leadership products, including views from portfolio managers and industry experts."

Petraeus, a four-star general, resigned in November after it was revealed that he had engaged in an affair with a woman who wrote a biography of him, Paula Broadwell.

In his new job, Petraeus will work with former Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman, who is KKR's Global Head of Public Affairs.
