DANBURY, Connecticut — George Mulvaney, who has built a renowned career with a base in the Danbury region, will be honored with the WestConn Society Breakfast for Student Success hosted by the WCSU Foundation in a ceremony on Tuesday, May 3, 2022.

Mulvaney is the founder of Mulvaney Mechanical, a high technology mechanical contracting company that has done millions of dollars’ worth of work over its 41 years of operation. The company has been recognized with a Connecticut Subcontractor of the Year award from the General Contractors Association of America.

Mulvaney has made community volunteer work an equal part of his life, having served as director and chair of several important boards in Danbury and Ridgefield, where he makes his home.

“The real benefit of success for me is to have the resources to help others who cannot help themselves,” Mulvaney said. “And that help doesn’t necessarily have to be monetary. It can be the donation of our time or the talents that we have.”

Mulvaney has been recognized previously with several awards, including the 2019 Cecil J. Previdi Award from the Greater Danbury Chamber of Commerce, the Good Scout Award from the Connecticut Yankee Council of the Boy Scouts of America, the Robert S. Young Humanitarian Award from Ability Beyond, the Spirit of Humanity Award from Regional Hospice and Palliative Care, the Community Leadership Award from Regional Hospice & Palliative Care, the Extraordinary Friendship and Support Award from the Association of Religious Communities, and the Good Samaritan Award from AMOS House.

“George Mulvaney is a great supporter of Western Connecticut State University,” said WCSU President Dr. John B. Clark. “He has made a significant difference and ensured the success of many students.”

WCSU Foundation President Cory Plock said, “George Mulvaney is a successful entrepreneur who benefits the community in multiple ways. He is a great inspiration to anyone, including WCSU students, who want to make a difference. That’s what makes him a wonderful honoree.”
