Harrison Goldin

Harrison J. Goldin

Vice Chairman, U.S. Financial Advisory

Harrison J. Goldin has played a leading role in the restructurings of numerous multi-billion dollar firms undergoing complex financial or operational change.

Harrison has served as chief executive officer, advisor, trustee or examiner during some of the largest and most complicated bankruptcies of the past two decades, including Bruno’s, Cityscape, Detroit, Drexel Burnham Lambert, Enron North America, First Interregional Advisors Corp., Loral Space & Communications, Madoff, MBIA, Monarch Capital Corporation, Rockefeller Center Properties and many others. With over 40 years of business, financial and public sector experience, Jay has the skills and independence required to bring opposing constituencies together to resolve complex restructurings and litigation.

Before founding Goldin Associates, Jay was the elected Comptroller of The City of New York for 16 years. He played a major role in New York City’s financial restructuring in the mid-1970s, which resulted in the City’s successful return to the public credit markets, its achievement of investment grade ratings and the restoration of its full borrowing capacity. As chief financial officer of New York City, Jay directed its financial and investigative audit units and managed its $40 billion pension fund. He supervised its large issuances of debt, oversaw the work of its underwriters and financial advisors (for whose selection he was responsible) and represented it to the credit rating agencies. He was voted the best comptroller in the United States by a panel of more than 100 experts selected by Crain’s Publication.

Jay is Chairman Emeritus of the Council of Institutional Investors and is a fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy. He was for many years an Adjunct Professor of Accounting at the Stern Graduate School of Business at New York University. He also taught finance at Columbia Law School and as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Cardozo and New York Law Schools. He was an attorney for the United States Department of Justice and at the New York law firm of Davis Polk & Wardwell.
