Charles E. F. Millard
On May 23, President Bush appointed Charles E. F. Millard Interim Director of the PBGC pending his confirmation by the U.S. Senate as PBGC Director.
Prior to his appointment to the PBGC, he was a Managing Director at Broadway Partners, a national real estate investment and management firm in New York. While with Broadway, he also served as President of BP Direct Securities, a broker-dealer licensed by the NASD and associated with Broadway Partners. Before joining Broadway Partners, Mr. Millard served as a Managing Director with Lehman Brothers in charge of Wealth Management Services.
In public life, Mr. Millard was a senior cabinet official in the administration of New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, serving as President of the New York City Economic Development Corp. and Chairman of the New York City Industrial Development Agency. In that role, Mr. Millard was responsible for the leases that concluded the redevelopment of 42nd Street, and for a reorganization of the agency that increased revenues and results in numerous measurable ways.
He was also twice elected to the New York City Council. As a Councilman, he drafted the original legislation that created the framework for Mayor Giuliani's initiative to eliminate pornography sales from many New York neighborhoods. This legislation required the balancing of numerous First Amendment and other constitutional concerns and has been upheld in Federal Court.
Mr. Millard has also served as a Managing Director and Group Head with Prudential Securities and as an associate attorney with Davis Polk & Wardwell where his activities included precedent-setting pro bono work.
In 1979-80, he worked as VISTA volunteer in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and in 1982-83, he served as Legislative Assistant for Foreign Affairs for Congresswoman Millicent Fenwick.
Mr. Millard holds a B.A. Honors Degree, cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Holy Cross College and a J.D. from Columbia Law School, where each year he was ranked a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.
