NEW YORK, Feb 27 (Reuters) - Peter Clare, chief investment officer of corporate private equity at Carlyle Group , will retire from the firm effective April 30, Carlyle said in a statement on Monday.

The announcement comes weeks after the buyout firm appointed former Goldman Sachs Inc executive Harvey Schwartz as its chief executive officer.

"Carlyle has an incredibly bright future, and I am grateful to have worked alongside so many outstanding colleagues to create long-term value for our investors. I want to say thank you to the entire Private Equity team who have been great partners and to the founders of Carlyle for giving me the opportunity to join them in building this firm," Clare said.
