On March 19, Brian McKeon was sworn-in as Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources (D/MR) at the State Department. He would only be the fourth person to encumber that position since its creation in 2009. This position, the third highest ranking office in Foggy Bottom was not filled during the previous Administration. The Department’s website does not list Mr. McKeon’s office or has his official bio as of this writing, but his public schedule includes meetings and briefings in Foggy Bottom on March 22. We’re sure the website will catch up soon.

Congratulations, Brian. Always so much to do to try to help the @StateDept meet its many challenges. Hopefully, you will have the help of many in Congress as well as the Executive Branch as you need it.

Congrats to one of my first bosses in DC, who taught me what a healthy command climate looks and feels like! State is so lucky to have you!
