President Donald Trump appointed George Sifakis, founder of information management firm Ideagen Pfc, as his director for the Office of Public Liaison, a job once thought to be reserved for Trump fundraiser Anthony Scaramucci.

Sifakis will coordinate for the administration with various interest groups, including outreach to corporations, advocacy organizations, and state and local elected officials. Scaramucci, a hedge fund investor, had been a leading candidate for the position, but that appointment was put on hold because of a delay in the Office of Government Ethics’ review of Scaramucci’s financial disclosures, a senior Trump official said last month.
