Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) has joined private equity firm Victory Park Capital as chairman of its executive board.
Lieberman retired from Congress a year ago after serving 24 years in the Senate.
"While in the U.S. Senate, I fought for policies that would allow small businesses to thrive," Lieberman said in a statement Thursday. "I look forward to a long-term partnership with Victory Park Capital that will position the firm for continued growth.”
Victory Park says it provides private debt and equity financing to middle-market companies.
"I am honored to welcome Sen. Lieberman," said Brendan Carroll, partner and co-founder. "His wealth of experience will bring tremendous value and his appointment serves as a testament to the growth of our firm."
Carroll worked for Lieberman as a special assistant in his Senate office from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Lieberman also serves as senior counsel at the law firm Kasowitz, Benson Torres & Friedman and as co-chairman of the American Enterprise Institute’s Internationalism Project.
