Tim Geithner to Join Leveraged Buyout Firm Warburg Pincus

Timothy Geithner, the former U.S. Treasury secretary who supervised government bailouts of some of the largest companies after the 2008 financial crisis, agreed to join private-equity firm Warburg Pincus LLC after more than 25 years in public service.

Geithner, 52, will become president at the New York-based buyout firm starting March 1 and help in managing the company, investing its funds and communicating with investors, according to a statement today from Warburg Pincus. He will work with Chip Kaye and Joe Landy, who have led the firm since 2000 and this year began sharing the title of co-chief executive officer.
