Scaramucci began his career at Goldman Sachs, where he worked from 1989 to 1996 and held positions in its Investment Banking, Equities, and Private Wealth Management divisions.
The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is an American multinational finance company that engages in global investment banking, investment management, securities, and other financial services, primarily with institutional clients.
Scaramucci left Goldman in 1996 to launch Oscar Capital Management with his colleague Andrew Boszhardt.
In 2005, Scaramucci founded global investment firm SkyBridge Capital, serving as co-managing partner before selling the company in early 2017 to take a role in the Trump administration.
SkyBridge Capital is a global investment firm based in New York City, United States.
Following the 2016 election, Scaramucci served on the Presidential-Transition Team Executive Committee.
On January 12, 2017, President-elect Trump announced his intent to appoint Scaramucci Director of the White House Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs.
Scaramucci's swearing-in was reportedly delayed by an extended review of his finances by the Office of Government Ethics, although the ethics office denied that clearance was necessary before making White House appointments.
The United States Office of Government Ethics is an independent agency within the executive branch of the U.S. Federal Government which is responsible for directing executive branch policies relating to the prevention of conflict of interest on the part of Federal executive branch officers and employees.
Ultimately, George Sifakis was appointed instead.
