Mike Donilon, chief strategist for the campaign, will become a senior adviser to the president. And Dana Remus, the campaign’s general counsel, will become counsel to the president.
“I am proud to announce additional members of my senior team who will help us build back better than before,” Biden said in a statement. “America faces great challenges, and they bring diverse perspectives and a shared commitment to tackling these challenges and emerging on the other side a stronger, more united nation.”
The announcements followed Biden naming Ron Klain as Chief of Staff on Wednesday. Biden was expected to nominate cabinet members in the coming days.
The latest appointees are:
