Vice President Kamala Harris has named Deanne Millison as her new chief economic adviser, elevating a financial services lawyer with extensive experience on Capitol Hill to oversee her efforts to address inflation and economic inequality.

Millison, who currently serves as Harris’s deputy policy director, is being promoted as part of a reshuffling of the White House’s economic team following the departure of Daleep Singh. Singh, who oversaw the administration’s sanctions effort against Russia following the invasion of Ukraine, recently departed to take a job as chief global economist for PGIM Fixed Income. He was replaced by Mike Pyle, the former BlackRock Inc. investment strategist who previously advised Harris on economic matters.
