Andrew Mayock has been nominated to serve as deputy director for management at OMB. He has extensive federal experience.

President Barack Obama has nominated Andrew Mayock, a senior adviser in the Office of Management and Budget, to be the agency's deputy director for management.

If confirmed, Mayock will take over for OMB Controller Dave Mader, who is serving in the position on an acting basis. The most recent Senate-confirmed deputy director for management, Beth Cobert, is leading the Office of Personnel Management on an acting basis and has been nominated to take over that job permanently.

Mayock would bring extensive federal agency experience to the job. He became a senior adviser at OMB in November, after serving as associate director for general government programs since 2013.

From 2010 to 2013, Mayock was deputy vice president for compact implementation at the Millennium Challenge Corporation, an independent U.S. foreign aid agency that works with poorer countries to develop their economies. From 2009 to 2010, he was executive secretary at the Treasury Department.

Mayock is also a veteran of the Clinton administration. From 1997 to 2000, he was special assistant to the deputy chief of staff and later senior adviser to the director of public liaison. He also served as special assistant to the chief of staff at Treasury from 1995 to 1996.

In addition, he has worked at Booz Allen Hamilton and the Center for Business and Government at Harvard University.
