Brooks Tucker, assistant secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Office of Congressional and Legislative Affairs, has been appointed to serve as the VA chief of staff on an acting basis.

Tucker, a retired U.S. Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, provides advice to the department secretary on legislative issues and coordinates its activities with Congress as part of his responsibilities in OCLA, the VA said Friday.

He previously supported Donald Trump’s presidential transition team for veteran policy, a deputy staff director on the Senate VA Committee and senior policy adviser to Richard Burr, R-N.C., on national security and veterans affairs matters.

The two-decade USMC veteran worked at Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank after his initial active duty service.
