former White House chief of staff, South Carolina congressman and acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
Few people are as familiar with Washington, D.C,. from the inside as Mick Mulvaney. He managed the White House as chief-of-staff to President Donald Trump during both an impeachment and the first days of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the director of the Office of Management and Budget and a cabinet member, Mulvaney oversaw the broadest deregulatory initiative in 40 years and managed the longest government shutdown in history. He also served as acting director of one of the most controversial federal regulators, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and was ambassador and special envoy to Northern Ireland during the height of Brexit.
Prior to his executive branch service, Mulvaney was elected four times to the U.S. House of Representatives, where, amongst other things, he co-founded the Freedom Caucus and the Bitcoin Caucus. He also served in the South Carolina House and Senate.
Prior to public service, he worked in various roles: lawyer, real estate developer, restaurant owner/operator and franchisor and homebuilder.
