Tyler Zachem and David Basto have joined The Carlyle Group (CG) as managing directors in the firm’s corporate private equity group, Fortune has learned.
Both men previously led Broad Sky Partners, a middle-market private equity firm they co-founded in late 2013, after leaving MidOcean Partners. Broad Sky was a so-called fundless sponsor, which means it worked on a deal-by-deal basis without having a defined pool of capital. It appears to have made two acquisitions: Apex Parks Group, a group of family entertainment centers; and MannaPro Products, an animal feed company.
At both Broad Sky and MidOcean, the pair focused on deals in the media, communications and business services sectors. They will work out of Carlyle’s New York office.
