President Obama plans to nominate Katherine Archuleta to be the next director of the Office of Personnel Management.
Archuleta, who has previously served as the national political director for Obama’s re-election campaign and chief of staff at the Labor Department, would be the first Latina to head the agency if confirmed.
“Katherine brings to the Office of Personnel Management broad experience and a deep commitment to recruiting and retaining a world-class workforce for the American people,” Obama said in a statement. “I am grateful Katherine has agreed to serve, and I look forward to working with her in the coming years.”
