Former General Motors chief financial officer, Chris Liddell, will stick around at the White House under the Trump administration as he’s appointed to Deputy Chief of Staff under Chief of Staff, John Kelly. Liddell was most recently Assistant to the President for Strategic Initiatives and a member of the Office of American Innovation.
The White House made Liddell’s appointment official on Monday days after he was considered for the chief economic advisor role. That position went to now-ex CNBC host, Larry Kudlow, who will replace Gary Cohn in the coming weeks.
“In his new role Chris will manage the policy process as we continue to enact the president’s agenda,” White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said.
Before his time in the White House with President Trump’s administration, Liddell was also CFO at Microsoft and International Paper.
