As the current Chairman of both the State of New York Mortgage Agency and the New York State Housing Finance Agency, Bill Mulrow is an established fixture on the New York financial and political scene. His position as Senior Managing Director of the Blackstone Group allows him to take a global view on the local housing issues facing the citizens of New York State. This unique perspective informs his oversight of existing mortgage lending programs and affordable housing initiatives. This provides him with the knowledge and expertise necessary to create new and innovative ways to help residents of the state.
Bill Mulrow began his career in the financial field shortly after he graduated with a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University. He completed his undergraduate studies at Yale, and can still be found cheering on the sports teams of his alma mater.
He has divided his time between the public and private sectors throughout his career, working with companies that have included Citigroup, Gabelli Asset Management, Donaldson, Lufkin and Jenrette, and Paladin Capital Group before taking on his current responsibilities at Blackstone. He has also held key positions in the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, the Westchester County Industrial Development Agency and the New York City Rent Guidelines Board.
When he is not juggling his numerous work responsibilities, he enjoys spending time with family, reading and rooting for his favorite New York professional sports teams, including the Yankees, Knicks and Giants. He also finds time to travel and recently visited Florence, Rome, Vienna and Capri.
