Henry M. Paulson, Jr. is a conservationist, businessman, China expert and author. He is the founder and chairman of The Paulson Institute, and co-chairman of the Latin American Conservation Council of The Nature Conservancy and the Risky Business initiative.
Paulson served as the 74th Secretary of the Treasury under President George W. Bush, from July 2006 to January 2009. Prior to that, he had a thirty-two year career at Goldman Sachs, serving as chairman and chief Executive Officer beginning in 1999. Earlier in his career, he was a member of the White House Domestic Council as well as a staff assistant at the Pentagon.
As a best-selling author of the book On the Brink, Paulson details his experiences as Treasury Secretary fending off the near-collapse of the U.S. economy during the Great Recession. His second book, Dealing with China, draws upon his unprecedented access to modern China's political and business elite, including its three most recent heads of state, to unmask the new economic superpower.
Paulson graduated from Dartmouth College in 1968 and received an M.B.A. from Harvard University in 1970.
