Shaun Donovan, President Barack Obama’s nominee to lead the Office of Management and Budget, has won Senate approval of his appointment by a 75-22 vote, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

He succeeds Sylvia Mathews Burwell, who is now the secretary of health and human services.

Donovan has held the role of housing and urban development secretary for the past five years and helped design federal strategies for responding to the housing downturn and Hurricane Sandy.

He previously served as commissioner at New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

As OMB director, he will aim to help the White House address federal budget deficit and economic growth issues.
