Jeffrey Livingston is a prominent businessman who is also the husband of Abby Huntsman. While much of what Jeffrey does is kept away from the media, Abby doesn’t have that luxury. The host of the popular day time show, The View, Abby is one of the up and coming journalists. While she is currently associated with MSNBC and NBC News, she left her spot on The View to help her father run his campaign for the governor of Utah. While much has been written about Abby, there is not much information about her husband. Which is why, in this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Jeffrey Livingston.
Jeffrey Bruce Livingston was born on the 4th of January 1985, in Dunedin, Florida. Born to Diedre Sharp Livingston Bruce V. Livingston, Jeffrey comes from a business family. His parents owned and operated Boyd Industries which is located in Clearwater, Florida. While the company produced and sold dental equipment, it provided Jeffrey an insight into the world of business. Following his graduation from high school, Jeffrey enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and graduated with a degree in economics with management and finance majors.
Following his graduation in 2007, Jeffrey started working for McKinsey and Company and was heavily involved in both locations of the company, New York and Beijing. After his time at McKinsey, Bruce joined the Kohlberg Kravis Roberts Company and started working at their New York Office. Alongside his work in KKR, Bruce also sits on the boards of Apple Leisure Group, and Sedgwick Claims Management Services. While he has helped his family’s business now and then, the business is doing pretty well and doesn’t require Bruce’s intervention.
Bruce also worked on the 2012 presidential campaign for his father in law, Jon Huntsman Jr. While his wife was the main advisor for the campaign, Jeffrey worked as the Chief Financial Officer for the campaign. Even though Jeffrey worked as the CFO for the campaign, it was a complete mess, to say the least. After the campaign ended Jon Huntsman Jr. owed a total debt of USD 2.58 million. Even after much repayment, the campaign still had a debt of USD 1.4 million. While much of the debt was incurred on the renting of Liberty State Park, it was later reported that the debt escalated due to the mismanagement of the available resources.
