Former Bloomberg Deputy Hires Former Spitzer Deputy

Paul Francis, the former state director of operations under Governors Spitzer and Paterson, has been picked up by Bloomberg LP to take a top job in the company’s Financial Products group, a Bloomberg spokeswoman confirmed. Put another way: Dan Doctoroff, formerly Michael Bloomberg’s influential deputy mayor and now Bloomberg LP’s president, hired last week a former top aide to Governors Spitzer and Paterson.

Mr. Francis, who resigned from the Paterson administration in June, worked in a number of the same areas in government as Mr. Doctoroff. Both men, for instance, attempted to bring about a deal on the Moynihan Station project.

Mr. Francis will report to Tom Secunda, head of the Financial Products group, according to a Bloomberg spokeswoman. Mr. Francis’ job is considered similar in scope to that of a chief operating officer. [Corrected].
