EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT, NASDAQ
Lauren Dillard, Executive Vice President for Global Information Services at Nasdaq, has just been announced as our Kayo Women’s Private Equity opening keynote on September 23. Prior to Nasdaq, she spent nearly two decades at The Carlyle Group as the Head of the Investment Solutions unit where she managed more than $40 billion in assets and 200 professionals across offices in six countries.
Under her leadership, Investment Solutions revenue increased more than three times over three years. She previously served as Carlyle’s COO and CFO of Investment Solutions, and led the firm’s global tax and equity units. She is also the recipient of the prestigious One Carlyle Award in recognition of her contributions to and support of the Firm’s collaborative culture.
