In a recent development, reports have revealed the name of the new Chief of Staff of the White House. According to sources, the U.S President is set to make an announcement soon, and a business executive is reportedly set to take on the position. The news comes after reports claimed that the current White House’s Chief of Staff plans to leave in the coming weeks.
U.S based newspaper, Washington Post, has reported that President Joe Biden will name Jeff Zients as his next chief of staff. Zients is a management consultant who left the White House in April after steering the administration’s pandemic response and leading the largest vaccination campaign in U.S history. However, he returned to the White House to help the current chief of staff, Ron Klain, prepare for staff turnover after the midterm elections. He has also served as an economic advisor to then President Barack Obama.
Reports claim that Klain informed Biden about his plans to step down, and in recent weeks, he has been assigning different projects to his team. This is viewed as a preparation for Zients’ transition to the new role.
Zients has a wealth of experience in both the public and private sectors. He has served as the director of the National Economic Council under President Obama and has also held leadership positions in various companies such as the Blackstone Group and the Boston Consulting Group.
As the new Chief of Staff, Zients will play a crucial role in implementing the President’s agenda and managing the White House staff. He will also be responsible for communicating the President’s message to the public and working with Congress to pass legislation.
Zients is known for his ability to bring people together and his problem-solving skills, which will be crucial in navigating the complex challenges facing the White House. His experience in both the public and private sectors will also be beneficial in addressing the economic challenges facing the country.
The news of Zients’ appointment has been met with positive reactions from both sides of the aisle. Political analysts believe that his experience and expertise will be instrumental in helping the President navigate the challenges facing the country.
The White House has not yet made an official announcement regarding Zients’ appointment, but it is expected that the President will do so in the coming days. The transition of power is expected to take place smoothly, and many are looking forward to seeing the new Chief of Staff in action.
As the country continues to face the challenges of the ongoing pandemic and the economic downturn, the role of the Chief of Staff will be more important than ever. With Zients at the helm, the White House is confident that they have the right person to lead the team and help the President steer the country towards a better future.
