He’s a businessman, philanthropist, author, and a politician, who’s probably known best for being the founder of the financial, software and data company Bloomberg L. P. Mike’s today amongst the richest people in the world.
He was raised in Boston alongside his sister Marjorie Tiven, by their father William Henry Bloomberg who was a bookkeeper and who died in 1963 aged 57, and their mother Charlotte (nee Rubens) who was a housewife, and who died in 2011 aged 102.

During his time at Johns Hopkins, he was a member of the fraternity Phi Kappa Psi. Mike continued his education at Harvard Business School, from which he obtained his Master of Business Administration degree in 1966.
He worked various jobs for the following seven years, until joining Salomon Brothers in 1973 as a general partner; Mike was fired in 1981 when the Phibro Corporation purchased the company, but received $10 million as his share. He invested the money into his own company called Innovative Market Systems, changing the name to Bloomberg L. P. in 1986.
In the ‘90s, the company expanded and new branches were established, such as Bloomberg News, Bloomberg Message and Bloomberg Radio. When he decided to focus on politics, Mike left his position as his company’s CEO.
On 1 January 2002, he became the 108th mayor of New York City, and was re-elected in both 2005 and 2009; he determined to work for a salary of $1 per year. There were rumors circulating the internet and media in early 2016 that Mike was to run for president, which he confirmed on 23 January, however, on 7 March Mike announced that he wouldn’t be running. He then supported Hillary Clinton and spoke against Donald Trump at the 2016 Democratic National Convention. On 24 November 2019, Mike announced that he would be running for president in 2020, and funded his own campaign while not accepting campaign contributions, however, on 4 March 2020, he suspended his campaign.
Mike has apparently donated over $10 billion to charity over the years. In August 2010, he signed The Giving Pledge, and has since donated money to numerous charity and non-profit organizations such as World Lung Foundation, World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
He’s an author, as he published his autobiography “Bloomberg by Bloomberg” in 1997, and in 2017 he co-wrote the book “Climate of Hope: How Cities, Businesses, and Citizens Can Save the Planet” together with Carl Pope, a former Sierra Club executive director.
Since 2000, Mike has been living with Diana Taylor who’s an American business executive; it appears that the two have decided not to marry.
