Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s Dina Powell, head of the firm’s philanthropic efforts, is poised to be named to a role in Donald Trump’s administration, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Powell, a partner since 2010, will be a presidential adviser, one of the people said Wednesday, asking not to be identified discussing the private talks. Powell has worked closely with Ivanka Trump, but the president-elect’s daughter isn’t expected to have a formal role in the West Wing.
