Following his successful academic years at Yale, William Mulrow set the stage for his devotion to public service by attending the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, where he graduated with a master’s degree in public administration. Mulrow immediately put his academic training to work as the Executive Assistant to the Director of the New York State Division of the Budget.
After a year in the public sector, Mulrow entered the world of finance by joining Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette Securities Corporation as a Managing Director and head of public finance banking. Thirteen years later, Mulrow left Donaldson, Lufkin to become a Managing Director of corporate finance at Rothschild Inc.
During his professional career in the business world, Mulrow did not stray from his commitment to serving the public. From 1987 through 2001, William Mulrow held several positions in government that included:
Chairman of the New York City Rent Guidelines Board
Member of the board of the United Nations Development Corporation
Member of the board of the Municipal Assistance Corporation of the City of New York
Vice Chairman of the Westchester County Deferred Compensation Board
Chairman of the Westchester County Industrial Development Agency
Member of the board of the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York
Following his tenure at Rothschild Inc., William Mulrow joined Gabelli Asset Management as a Senior Vice President in charge of new product development. His career path eventually took him to Paladin Capital Group as a Managing Director, Citigroup Global Capital Markets Inc. as a Director and Blackstone, where he currently serves as a Senior Managing Director.
It seems that no matter where William Mulrow is in his professional life, he always finds the time and energy to devote to serving the public. When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo asked him to chair the New York State Housing Finance Agency and the State of New York Mortgage Agency, Mulrow accepted the opportunity to lead a key agency in the governor’s efforts to restore the state’s residential housing market. The State of New York Mortgage Agency is a source of affordable mortgage loans for first-time home buyers.
Although his schedule might appear to leave little time for anything other than his business and public sector positions, Mulrow somehow finds the time to remain active in the Democratic Party in New York. He served as its Vice Chairman and ran as the party’s candidate for New York State Comptroller in 2002.
Mulrow’s achievements have earned him the recognition of many organizations over the course of his career. He was the recipient of the North American Board of Rabbis Humanitarian Award and the Roy Wilkins Humanitarian Award from the NAACP of New York State.
His busy schedule does not prevent William Mulrow from spending time at home in Westchester County with his family.
