Jim Donovan is a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs and has been with the firm since 1993.

On March 15, 2017 President Trump nominated Donovan to serve as Deputy Secretary of the Treasury.[1] He was nominated despite concerns within the administration that with the addition of Donovan there were "too many Goldman guys" in top posts.[2] Donovan withdrew from consideration on May 19, 2017.[3][4]


Donovan earned his B.S. degree in chemical engineering from MIT, where he was a varsity rower,[5] and an M.B.A. from MIT Sloan School in 1989. He earned his J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1993.[6]
