Private equity giant Leon Black quits Apollo completely after Epstein investigation

Leon Black is out at Apollo Global Management, the private equity and debt giant he co-founded in 1990, just two months after the conclusion of an independent investigation into his interactions with Jeffrey Epstein.

Why it matters: Black is one of the fathers of the modern private equity industry, making this arguably the most significant private equity retirement ever.


Change of plans: In January, Black announced plans to turn over the CEO role to fellow Apollo co-founder Marc Rowan at the end of July, but said that he planned to remain chairman of the publicly-traded firm.

  • Black accelerated the CEO switch to today, and said the chairman role will now be assumed by former SEC chair Jay Clayton.
  • Apollo also added two new directors: Richard Emerson (ex-Evercore Partners, Microsoft) and Kerry Murphy Healey (former Lt. Gov of Massachusetts).

In a statement, Black said:

"In the last few months, not only did we announce a transformative merger with Athene, but also expect to report that our first quarter earnings will exceed analyst consensus in all relevant measures and that the first quarter fundraising is trending towards the high end of our $15-20b annual range. I thus view this as the ideal moment to step back and focus on my family, my wife Debra’s and my health issues, and my many other interests.”

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
