His most recent announcement was to merge his business team.
Deese, who was widely expected to take up the role, previously served as Deputy Director of the Board and Deputy Director of the Office of Administration and Budget (OMB). During the Obama administration, he played a key role in negotiations to rescue the auto industry and helped negotiate accession to the Paris Climate Agreement.
“Brian is one of the country’s most tried and efficient civil servants – a reliable voice I can count on to help end the current economic crisis, build a better economy that employs everyone and takes on the existential threat of climate change in a way that creates well-paying American jobs. “Biden said in a statement.

Since leaving the government, Deese has led sustainable investment measures at New York-based BlackRock Investment Management Group. This affiliation has raised concerns among some of the guards who were concerned about corporate officials rejoining the government.
