HENRY KRAVIS – ‘BLOOMBERG GAME CHANGERS’

Airing Thursday, November 11th at 9 PM/ET on Bloomberg Television

This Thursday, November 11th at 9:30 PM/ET, “Bloomberg Game Changers” profiles Henry Kravis, the billionaire co-founder of private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.

His name is synonymous with ‘Corporate Titan.’ As co-founder of KKR, Henry Kravis re-wrote the rules of leveraged buyouts; he and his cousin George Roberts now rule over an empire that dwarfs some of the world’s mightiest public corporations. “Bloomberg Game Changers” follows Kravis’ rise from his early days in ‘bootstrap’ acquisitions, through his role in the 1988 landmark LBO of RJR-Nabisco, to KKR’s IPO on the New York Stock Exchange.

Interviews include: John Mack, Chairman and former CEO of Morgan Stanley; Alan “Ace” Greenberg, former Chairman of Bear Stearns; James Robinson, former CEO of American Express and a key player in the RJR-Nabisco deal; Richard Beattie, Chairman of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP and chief lawyer for KKR in the RJR-Nabisco deal; Lewis Eisenberg, former partner at Goldman Sachs and a close personal friend of Henry Kravis for over 30 years; and Bryan Burrough, author of the landmark 1990 book ‘Barbarians at the Gate.’
