Senate Confirms Derek Kan as Deputy Director of White House Budget Office

WASHINGTON D.C. – The United States Senate today confirmed Derek Kan as the deputy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The Senate earlier this month confirmed Russell Vought to be Director of OMB.

“Mr. Kan has the necessary experience for this key position at OMB, and I am glad he is willing to serve in this important role,” said Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi (R-WY).

Mr. Kan currently serves as the Executive Associate Director of the White House’s Budget Office.  Prior to this, he served in the Department of Transportation in a Senate-confirmed position as Under Secretary of Policy for Secretary Elaine Chao.
