Bloomberg returns to Bloomberg

by
Michael Bloomberg

Michael Bloomberg received a warm welcome-home this morning from the chief executive of Bloomberg L.P., the financial information and media company founded by the 71-year-old plutocrat in 1981, reports Joe Pompeo of Capital New York.

Pompeo writes, “In a company memo obtained by Capital, Bloomberg L.P. C.E.O. and former deputy mayor Dan Doctoroff told employees ‘we’ll be seeing more of him at 731 Lexington and our offices around the world. When he’s in New York, Mike will most likely spend a few hours a day working from his new desk on the fifth floor.’

“As first reported by Capital in November, Bloomberg made plans to return to the company, both physically and practically, as he was preparing to leave public office. Sources told us he would focus largely on the opinion offering Bloomberg View and that ‘chairman of Bloomberg View’ was one of the titles being considered.

“But the extent to which Bloomberg will be involved in day-to-day operations is still unclear. Asked for clarification, a spokesperson for Bloomberg declined to comment.”
