Rudolph W. Giuliani

Chairman

Rudolph Giuliani is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Giuliani Partners LLC, which he founded in January 2002. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Mr. Giuliani began his career as a law clerk to United States District Court Judge Lloyd F. MacMahon in the Southern District of New York. In 1970, he joined the office of the U.S. Attorney and was soon named Chief of the Narcotics Unit and promoted to the position of Executive U.S. Attorney. In 1973, at age 29, Mr. Giuliani was placed in charge of the police corruption cases resulting from the highly publicized Knapp Commission report.

Two years later, Mr. Giuliani was recruited to Washington, D.C., where he was appointed Associate Deputy Attorney General and chief of staff to the Deputy Attorney General. In 1977, Mr. Giuliani returned to New York to practice law and joined the firm of Patterson, Belknap, Webb and Tyler.

In 1981, President Reagan appointed Mr. Giuliani to be U.S. Associate Attorney General, the Department of Justice’s third highest position. In this role, Mr. Giuliani supervised the U.S. Attorney offices nationwide, as well as federal law enforcement agencies, including the Bureau of Corrections, the Drug Enforcement Agency and the U.S. Marshals Service. In 1983, he became U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, where he earned a national reputation for his efforts to eradicate organized and white-collar crime and government corruption. During his high-profile prosecutorial career, Mr. Giuliani secured 4,152 convictions, with only 25 reversals.

Following his tenure as a U.S. Attorney, Mr. Giuliani returned to private practice as a partner at White & Case and later as a partner at Anderson, Kill & Olick.

In 1993, Mr. Giuliani was elected as the 107th Mayor of the City of New York and was re-elected in 1997. By the conclusion of his second term in 2001, almost 700,000 New York City residents had moved from the welfare rolls to work and the city’s crime rate had fallen by 57 percent, prompting the FBI to rate New York as America’s safest large city. A number of novel law enforcement strategies implemented under Mayor Giuliani’s leadership became models for other cities around the world, including the CompStat program for monitoring criminal activity, which won the 1996 Innovations in Government Award from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

In recognition of his leadership of the city following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Time magazine named Mr. Giuliani the 2001 “Person of the Year.” He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and was presented the Ronald Reagan Presidential Freedom Award by former First Lady Nancy Reagan.

Mr. Giuliani continues in his role as Chairman and CEO of Giuliani Partners LLC, a management consulting firm which he founded in 2002, as well as a Senior Advisor/Senior Chair of Firm Development at Greenberg Traurig, a law firm. In addition to his responsibilities at his companies, Mr. Giuliani continues to be actively engaged in politics, campaigning for worthy candidates across the nation.
