 KKR & Co., the private-equity firm run by Henry Kravis and George Roberts, is in discussions with former Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus about a role at the company, according to a person with knowledge of the talks.

It hasn’t been decided yet what role he would have at KKR, said the person, who requested anonymity because the discussions are private. Petraeus and Kravis are friends and talk often, according to the person.

Petraeus, 60, resigned from the CIA on Nov. 9 after a probe by the Federal Bureau of Investigation uncovered evidence of an extramarital affair with Paula Broadwell, the author of a biography about the former commander of U.S. military forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. Last week, City University of New York named Petraeus a visiting professor starting Aug. 1.

Kristi Huller, a spokeswoman for KKR, declined to comment. Robert Barnett, a lawyer for Petraeus, didn’t respond to an e- mail requesting comment.
