Barrett Karr, chief of staff to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, will join Silver Lake Partners private equity firm next month.

She will head government relations at the Menlo Park-based $43B assets firm that has invested in tech companies such as Broadcom, Dell, Symantec, Seagate and Skype.

Karr took the CoS slot in January 2017, after serving as deputy chief for McCarthy, who is one of president Trump’s biggest supporters on Capitol Hill.

Earlier, she was Republican staff director at the House Education Committee, assistant legislative affairs director for president George W. Bush and CoS to Rep. Kay Granger of Texas.
