Jeff Zients is the next chief of staff at the White House, as announced by US President Joe Biden

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, has announced that Jeff Zients, a longtime assistant who led his huge COVID-19 response effort, would succeed Biden as Chief of Staff of the White House. Zients has prior experience working with the Obama administration.

Zients will take over for Ron Klain, who has served in this capacity for more than two years and will step down. President Biden announced that the White House will play host to an official ceremony marking the turnover of power the following week.

The shift marks the first substantial change in personnel for an administration that has had very little turnover both at the highest levels of the government and across the Cabinet.

When the Democratic administration shifts from enacting ambitious goals to implementing those policies and fending off attempts by Republicans to undermine the accomplishments, Zients, who will be 56 years old at the time, will be entrusted with overseeing the operations of the White House and will be given this responsibility at the key two-year point of Biden’s tenure.

According to the Associated Press, Zients is in charge of guiding the White House as it struggles to control the fallout from the discovery of classified documents at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, and at his former institute in Washington, which has prompted an investigation by a special counsel. Zients is also responsible for guiding the White House as it attempts to control the fallout from the discovery of classified documents at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, and his former institute in Washington.

According to Biden, it is very necessary to find someone to replace Klain who is aware of what it takes to lead a team and who is just as dedicated to getting things done.

I’ve seen Jeff Zients take on some of the most challenging problems facing the country. When I was Vice President, I first came to know him at the beginning of the Obama-Biden Administration. We worked closely together on the execution of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and Zients was a leader in the Office of Management and Budget at the time,” he added.
