Wall Street 50 – 2018

Francis Mahoney/Ernst & Young

Frank Mahoney currently serves as EY America’s Assurance Vice Chair, heading a staff of more than 20,000 finance professionals. Frank was appointed to this position in 2014, after more than 30 years of increasing management titles at the company.

Born and raised in Boston (his first job was a hot dog vendor at Fenway Park), he is a fourth-generation Irish American with roots in Cork on both sides. “When I think about my Irish heritage,” he says, “I feel connected to a group of people who are widely known for an indefatigable work ethic, an openness to take on challenges, and a tenacity that helps them see those challenges through.” Frank holds a B.A. from Boston College and has served on several boards in the Boston area, including Catholic Charities and the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce.

He currently serves as a trustee of Xaverian Brothers High School and the Newton Country Day School. He and his wife Mary have four children, Sarah, Frankie, Lindsey, and Jack.
