The 2011 Strategic Growth Conference, which is the 17th annual Strategic Growth Conference being hosted by the National Capital Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth, is coming up in just a few short weeks.

This year’s event promises to be the best in chapter history. It will feature speeches by some of the business world’s most successful and influential leaders, break-out sessions and panel discussions focusing on today’s largest challenges facing businesses and time for networking with the other great minds driving the business community in the National Capital region.

One of the speakers lined up for this year’s conference is none other than Mr. David M. Rubenstein, a Co-Founder and Managing Director of The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s largest private equity firms.

According to a bio from the Carlyle Group, Mr. Rubenstein co-founded the firm in 1987. Since then, the firm has grown and now manages more than $97 billion from 27 offices around the world.

In 1970, Mr. Rubenstein, a Baltimore native, graduated magna cum laude from Duke. He then graduated in 1973 from The University of Chicago Law School, where he was an editor of the Law Review.

From 1973-75, Mr. Rubenstein practiced law in New York with Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. From 1975-76 he served as Chief Counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Constitutional Amendments. From 1977-1981, during the Carter Administration, Mr. Rubenstein was Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy. After his White House service and before co-founding Carlyle, Mr. Rubenstein practiced law in Washington with Shaw, Pittman, Potts & Trowbridge (now Pillsbury, Winthrop, Shaw Pittman).

Mr. Rubenstein’s private-equity and corporate growth experience is unparalleled in the National Capital region and we are extremely happy to have him speaking at this year’s Strategic Growth Conference.
