Deere added that Ueland’s first day on the job would be June 17.
Ueland will succeed Shahira Knight, who announced last month that she was leaving the White House and is expected to move to a job in the private sector.
News of Ueland’s hire was first reported Thursday by Axios.
Ueland is deputy director of the White House’s Domestic Policy Council. He is a Capitol Hill veteran who was a Republican staff director of the Senate Budget Committee. He also worked as chief of staff to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and Sen. Don Nickles (Okla.), and was an official with Trump’s presidential transition team. From 2007 to 2013, Ueland worked at the Duberstein Group, a large lobbying firm.
In 2017, Trump nominated Ueland to serve as undersecretary of state for management. His nomination was withdrawn in June 2018.
