John Major is a British politician. He was leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister from 1990 to 1997.[1]

Post Prime Ministerial Employment

Major was appointed European Chairman of The Carlyle Group in May 2001, and their website quoted him as stating “I have enjoyed my time in politics but it is now time to move on. Carlyle is preeminent as a private equity firm and I have greatly enjoyed working with them over the past few years as a member of the European Advisory Board. The firm's strong commitment to Europe, its global reputation, and its unquestioned integrity were all factors in my decision to take on this role and I very much look forward to expanding my involvement with such a world class organisation.”[2]


John Major is one of only 4 UK prime ministers not known to have attended a Bilderberg conference since the group began in 1954, and the only one in the last 50 years.
