The Trump-Pence Presidential Transition has named a new executive director to oversee the process of installing the new executive branch.
According to a transition team press release sent out Wednesday, Ken Nahigian — who began working with Trump's campaign last summer — will step into his new position this week.
Rick Dearborn was serving in this role, but he is about to start his new job as Trump's deputy chief of staff after Trump is inaugurated Friday.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence has served as the transition team's chairman since November.
"Ken has been a tremendous and critical asset to the transition," Dearborn said. "In the days following the election, his role evolved to not only manage President-Elect Support, but also prepare our great cabinet designees for their hearings. The transition is in capable hands with Ken Nahigian, who has tirelessly supported it from day one and will carry it through the finish line."
In his role as head of President-Elect Support, Nahigian oversaw all strategic planning for Trump, Pence, their families, and all cabinet/staff nominees.
"I'm honored that the president-elect, vice president-elect, and Rick Dearborn have entrusted me with this responsibility, and it is my honor to continue my service to this new administration," said Nahigian, a principal at a public relations, communications planning, and strategy firm.
