Carlyle Group’s new chief executive officer Harvey M. Schwartz stands to make more than $180 million over the next 5 years, a package that would make him one of Wall Street’s highest-paid executives. He will also earn a $1 million annual base salary and be eligible for bonuses of up to $6 million annually. However, the package is worth less than the $300 million deal that former Carlyle chief executive Kewsong Lee had been seeking in contract negotiations.

The package includes roughly $108 million in performance-based restricted stock units and $72 million in time-based restricted stock units.

Carlyle Group Inc (NASDAQ:CG) has also agreed to pay Schwartz up to $19.5 million in stock grants he will have to forfeit from his former employer Goldman Sachs. Schwartz will replace former CEO Kewsong Lee, who left Carlyle abruptly in August last year. Schwartz was a former president and co-chief operating officer at Goldman Sachs (GS).

Should Schwartz earn the full amount, his pay would average at least $40 million a year, significantly more than many other Wall Street executives, including David Solomon, the current chief executive of Goldman Sachs. Solomon earned $25 million in 2022, a cut of almost 30% compared with a year earlier.
