Carlyle Group Acquires Dupont, Will Remain With Gordon

The Carlyle Group, one of the world's largest investment firms with a portfolio of businesses that includes Hertz Rental Car, Allison Transmission and Dunkin' Donuts, announced today that it has acquired DuPont's paint business. Although the people, products and technologies will remain the same, the paint business, which sponsors Jeff Gordonís No. 24 Chevrolet at Hendrick Motorsports, has been rebranded as Axalta Coating Systems.

1. Heh. A guy I went to junior high with is a VP with Carlyle.

But I still hate the company.

He was the geeky, pudgy kid with horn rimmed glasses, slicked back hair, always wore a tie, and carried a briefcase. He actually grew up to look rather nice. But he was an undersecretary in the Treasury Dept under Bush and is a RWer.

3. Do you know him or of him?? Do tell if you know anything juicy.

He's one of my contacts on LinkedIn but we don't stay in touch.

My best friend kept in touch with Randy. She's the one who told me he was some hotshot attorney in DC. She died a few years ago so I don't get Randy updates anymore.

4. I notice that Wikipedia says he was considered likely for Sec of the Treasury if Rmoney won.

This makes perfect sense because Quarles is a good true-believing Mormon. Mormon Mafia, if you will.
