Jeff T.H. Pon, chief human resources and strategy officer at the Society for Human Resource Management, will be nominated to fill the director position at the Office of Personnel Management.
Pon also held the role of chief operating officer at Futures Inc., a technology company that aims to help transitioning military personnel explore and find civilian job opportunities.
His government career has included positions such as deputy director of eGovernment at OPM and chief human capital officer at the Energy Department.
The White House announced Trump’s planned nomination of Pon a month after George Nesterczuk withdrew from consideration to be the next OPM director.
