The transition of the American government from Trump’s team into the hands of Biden’s probably is already in motion. Even though there were some hindrances at the beginning of the transition, things are going smoothly now. This period allows work to take place to ease the shift between the two administrations.
President-elect Joe Biden’s inaugural ceremony is expected to take place on the 20th of January. However, Biden has already announced names for several critical designations in his administration.
It seems that Joe Biden wants Indian-American Neera Tanden to be his Director of the Office of Management and Budget. It’s one of the top official positions in the White House responsible for managing the administration’s budget. Neera is currently the President of the Center for American Progress.
Neera Tanden’s Net Worth is estimated between $1 Million to $5 Million
Though there is no public disclosure of the 50-year-old political consultant’s earning, Neera Tanden is expected to have a net worth somewhere in the range of $1 Million to $5 Million.
After she graduated from Yale Law School, Neera Tanden has worked as a lawyer and political consultant for various presidential campaigns.

Neera Tanden’s nomination comes as part of Biden plan to build a team of liberal and centrist economic advisers. According to the US Daily,
“With the picks, Mr Biden is showcasing a commitment to diversity in his advisers and sending a clear message that economic policymaking in his administration will be shaped by liberal thinkers with a strong focus on worker empowerment as a tool for economic growth.”
Apart from nominating Neera as Director of the Office of Management and Budget, president-elect Joe Biden also plans to nominate economist Cecilia Rouse as chair of the Council of Economic Advisers.
If the United States Senate approves of Neera Tanden’s nomination for the position of Director of the Office of Management and Budget, then it will make her the first woman of color to hold the reputed position. As the head of the Office of Management and Budget, Neera would be responsible for preparing Joe Biden’s budget submission and would command several hundred budget analysts, economists, and policy advisers with deep knowledge of the inner workings of the government.
Neera Tanden has previously worked closely with the Clintons. During the initial days of her career, she worked with Bill Clinton’s campaign on new energy policies, and health-care reform, as associate director for domestic policy in the White House while also serving as a senior advisor in the First Lady’s Office.
The 50-year-old has since worked with for Hilary Clinton as an advisor for her Senatorial campaign, her Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, presidential campaigns, 2016 primary season nomination campaign and the general election campaign. She even worked for the Obama administration as a senior adviser to Secretary Kathleen Sebelius of the Department of Health and Human Services.Net Worth of Neera Tanden as Joe Biden nominates her name for Budget Chief
