Prime Minister Johnson Chooses Rosenfield As Cummings’s Controversial Successor

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has appointed Dan Rosenfield as the new Chief of Staff. He succeeds the controversial advisor Dominic Cummings, who left earlier this month.


Rosenfield is a business advisor and a former treasury officer.

He will start working at 10 Downing Street from 7 December and will officially assume the position of Chief of Staff from 1 January.

Johnson is in the process of hiring a new team of advisers after leaving Cummings. Cummings was seen as the driving force behind Johnson’s Brexit strategy.

His departure is seen as a chance of a ‘reset’ for the British leader. Top advisor Lee Cain also announced earlier this month that he was leaving.
