Ivanka Trump, who is serving as executive assistant to her father, President Donald Trump, has hired a chief-of-staff who has some close ties to George W. Bush’s White House, Politico reported Friday.

Julie Radford, who formerly worked under Bush’s education secretary, Margaret Spelling, will serve as Trump’s chief of staff after being recruited in February by Dina Powell, chief of the personnel office in the Bush White House and current deputy national security adviser, Politico reported.

The hiring comes just before Ivanka Trump will travel to Berlin to take part in a W20 women’s summit put on by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Radford and Powell will accompany Trump on that trip, Politico reported.

It is unclear how many staffers Ivanka Trump will hire.
