Biden explains why he chose Ron Klain as his Chief of Staff in a statement he made yesterday.
“His deep, varied experience and capacity to work with people all across the political spectrum is precisely what I need in a White House chief of staff as we confront this moment of crisis and bring our country together again.”

Being appointed as Chief of Staff means that Rob Klain will oversee the Executive workings of Office of the President and serve as a senior advisor.
Rob Klain’s duties will also include building a diverse, experienced and talented team for both Biden and the soon to be Vice President Kamala Harris. This team will help Biden and Harris in meeting the imminent challenge that the country is facing.

Klain has also previously worked as the White House Ebola Response Coordinator. He was appointed by President Obama at a time when the health crisis was at its peak.

I look forward to helping him and the Vice President-elect assemble a talented and diverse team to work in the White House, as we tackle their ambitious agenda for change, and seek to heal the divides in our country.”
