White House Considers Christopher Liddell for NEC Director Post

Christopher Liddell

Christopher Liddell, director of strategic initiatives at the White House, has emerged as a front-runner to succeed former National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, the New York Times reported Saturday.

The report said Cohn resigned as NEC head and President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser due to differences of opinion over new import tariffs.

Liddell has worked with Jared Kushner, senior adviser to President Trump, in efforts to simplify government functions such as technology procurement and digital service delivery.

Before he joined the government last year, Liddell served as chief financial officer at Microsoft and General Motors.
