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.
