Representative Sean Patrick Maloney held his first “Congress at Your Company” at MasterCard's headquarters in Purchase where more than a thousand employees work, including many New Yorkers from the 18th Congressional District. Maloney held a jobs roundtable with the company’s leaders and a town hall with the company's employees.
“After leaving the Clinton White House, I built and ran a high-tech business that created hundreds of jobs in the state. Now, I am planning on traveling all across our region to visit with employers and employees to hear about their ideas to grow our economy and create jobs,” said Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney.
“Westchester County and the Hudson Valley are home to numerous high-tech innovative companies like MasterCard. MasterCard has an excellent track record creating good paying jobs and attracting new talent to the region, and Congress should help by creating an environment for businesses to thrive.”
"We were pleased to welcome Congressman Maloney to MasterCard," said MasterCard's General Counsel, Noah Hanft. "As a global payments leader, we recognize that an ongoing two-way dialogue and a partnership with government leaders is critical. Congressman Maloney has an impressive background in both the private and public sector, and we look forward to partnering with him in the months and years to come."
When Congressman Maloney left the Clinton White House, he built his own software company from scratch. His high-tech startup created hundreds of New York jobs.
