Daniel Doctoroff

Daniel L. Doctoroff is President and Chief Executive Officer of Bloomberg L.P., the leading provider of financial information.  Mr. Doctoroff joined Bloomberg L.P. in January 2008 as President of the Company and was appointed Chief Executive Officer in August 2011. Mr. Doctoroff has led the Company through the financial crisis by pursuing an ambitious investment strategy, which included major enhancements to its products, services and technology, starting up new businesses, and acquisitions such as Bloomberg Businessweek. 

Shortly after joining the company, Mr. Doctoroff initiated one of the biggest shifts in the Company's business organization and growth strategy since its founding. Despite the financial crisis, in the five years since he joined the company, Bloomberg achieved record results each year.

 Prior to joining Bloomberg, Mr. Doctoroff was Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York. With Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Mr. Doctoroff led one of the city’s most dramatic economic resurgences, spearheading the effort to revive New York after the attacks of 9/11 
through a five-borough economic development strategy. This plan included the most ambitious land-use transformation in the city’s modern history; the largest affordable housing program ever launched by an American city; the formation of new Central Business Districts, and the development of acres of new parkland, including the High Line, and miles of redeveloped waterfront . All told, Mr. Doctoroff helped lead New York to its strongest economic position in decades. 

As Deputy Mayor, Mr. Doctoroff also led the creation of PlaNYC, a 127-point plan designed to create the first environmentally sustainable 21st century city. The plan focuses on every facet of New York’s physical environment – its transportation network, housing stock, land and park system, energy network, water supply and air quality – and sets the course for a 30% reduction in global warming emissions by 2030. After only five years, the city is more than halfway to its goal. Before joining the Bloomberg administration, Mr. Doctoroff was Managing Partner of Oak Hill Capital Partners, a major private equity investment firm. During his fourteen-year association with Oak Hill, Mr. Doctoroff led the purchases of companies in a wide variety of industries including information services, insurance, thrifts, cable television, hotels and leasing. While at Oak Hill, Mr. Doctoroff founded NYC2012, the organization dedicated to bringing the Olympic Games to New York. He continued to oversee New York City’s bid as Deputy Mayor, ensuring that the Olympic effort spurred parks, housing, and economic development projects in all five boroughs.

Prior to joining Oak Hill, Mr. Doctoroff was an investment banker at Lehman Brothers. Mr. Doctoroff received a B.A. degree from Harvard College and a J.D. degree from The Law School at the University of Chicago. Before attending law school, Doctoroff was a political pollster. He lives in New York City with his wife, Alisa, and their three children.

Mr. Doctoroff serves on the Boards of the University of Chicago, World Resources Institute, and Human Rights First. In addition, he created Target ALS, a $25 million collaborative effort to develop target therapies for Lou Gehrig’s disease, and he is Chairman of Culture Shed, an innovative cultural institution to be located on Manhattan’s West Side.
