The White House announced a new leader of the Office of Personnel Management after Jeff Pon abruptly announced his resignation, the Washington Post reports.
According to the report, Pon—who was confirmed by the Senate in March—was at odds with the administration over its planned reorganization of the agency, which would have diminished his role and authority.
On Oct. 5, the White House announced that Margaret Weichert, a senior official of the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, is taking over as the new OPM director, the article notes.
