In a time-honored tradition, former Federal Communications Chairman Julius Genachowski has joined private equity giant Carlyle Group as a managing director, according to Variety. Carlyle is well-known for attracting former government officials to its ranks, and it’s nice to see a former FCC commissioner that isn’t heading to Comcast or an industry lobbying group. Genachowski was in the private equity world prior to his tenure at the FCC as a co-founder at startup incubator LaunchBox Digital and as an advisor to General Atlantic.
