President-elect Joe Biden’s campaign manager is expected to join the incoming administration as a deputy chief of staff, NBC News and CNN reported on Monday.

Jen O’Malley Dillon’s anticipated hire for the job — her first in the White House — comes after last week Biden announced Ron Klain would be joining his administration as chief of staff.

O’Malley Dillon joined the Biden campaign back in March and became the first woman to lead a winning Democratic presidential race, moving the President-elect’s campaign from the primary field into a general election battle that helped Biden claim a handful of battleground states that had been won by his predecessor in 2016 and ultimately relegated Donald Trump to a single term.

O’Malley Dillon has held a number of top roles in Democratic operations, including executive director of the Democratic National Committee and the founding partner at Democratic consulting firm known as Precision Strategies.

Before joining Biden’s team, O’Malley Dillon had served as campaign manager for former Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s 2020 presidential bid, in addition to stints on both of former President Barack Obama’s campaigns — serving as battleground states director for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and the deputy campaign manager for his 2012 re-election campaign.
