Bill Mulrow is a senior advisor at Blackstone, one of the world’s leading investment firms. Before rejoining the firm in 2017, he served as Secretary to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, the highest appointive office in New York State and the chief aide of the governor. Over a career of more than 30 years, Bill’s areas of expertise have spanned finance, business, government, and academia. He is also a past recipient of the Roy Wilkins Humanitarian Award of the New York State NAACP.
Born in the Bronx, Bill is a graduate of Yale and the Harvard Kennedy School and was a Rhodes Scholar finalist. Both his father and mother are natives of Clonbur, County Galway, a picturesque town which film buffs may recognize as one of the filming locations of John Wayne’s 1952 The Quiet Man.
“I am a first-generation Irish American who is proud of his roots, grateful to his parents, and fortunate to be a part of the long history of Irish American contribution to our country,” Bill says. He is married to Teddy Mulrow, with whom he has three children, Kelly, Jennifer, and Jack, and lives in New York.
