SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HireVue, provider of the most comprehensive suite of AI-driven talent assessment and video interviewing solutions, today announced the completion of The Carlyle Group's (NASDAQ: CG) majority investment in HireVue.

"I can't imagine a better partner for HireVue than The Carlyle Group," said Kevin Parker, Chairman and CEO at HireVue. "Together we'll make swift progress on our broad, growth-focused agenda to deliver new hiring solutions and capabilities for the global enterprise."
