Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was welcomed back Monday into the Manhattan offices of the media company he founded after serving 12 years as the city's chief executive.
"I'm thrilled to tell you that we'll be seeing more of him
at 731 Lexington and our offices around the world," said Bloomberg's chief executive officer Daniel Doctoroff in a memo sent to employees, The New York Times reported.
"When he's in New York, Mike will most likely spend a few hours a day working from his new desk on the fifth floor," the CEO added. "I know I speak for all of us when I say how excited we are to welcome him home."
Bloomberg reportedly arrived at Bloomberg Tower at 7 a.m. Monday morning. The new headquarters opened in 2004. His time there Monday marked the first time he had worked at the building in any official capacity.
The former mayor and media billionaire expected to focus his post-mayoral efforts on philanthropy and to that end has a trip to South Africa scheduled for February to meet with officials from cities around the world.
