Working at the venerable New York-based private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (NYSE: KKR) is undoubtedly a coveted job. Alisa Wood has been a member of the client and partner group, working with the firm’s limited partner clients, since joining in 2003.
KKR has seen unprecedented growth in its product offering and in its growth of limited partner relationships during her tenure at the firm. In fact, before Wood joined the firm there wasn’t a team or a person that focused on limited partner relationships. “Focusing on fundraising showed our clients how important they are to us and that these relationships aren’t a sideshow. We are client centric. We are focusing on them every day,” says Wood.
