Steven Mnuchin, the national finance chairman for the Trump presidential campaign, is Trump’s pick for Treasury secretary, the New York Times reports.
Mnuchin was plucked from the very “global power structure” Trump had decried during the campaign. He is a former partner of Goldman Sachs and the founder of a hedge fund, Dune Capital Management.
If confirmed, Mnuchin would be the third Goldman Sachs alum to head the Treasury Department in the last two decades. As the interactive Muckety map above shows, his predecessors include Hank Paulson and Robert Rubin, who both served as chairman of Goldman.
Mnuchin’s father, Robert Mnuchin, was also at Goldman before becoming an art dealer, founding the Mnuchin Gallery in New York.
