Dan Brouillette, Deputy Secretary: “Most recently he was the Senior Vice President and head of public policy for USAA, the Nation’s leading provider of financial services to the military community. Before joining USAA, Mr. Brouillette was a Vice President of Ford Motor Company, where he led the automaker’s domestic policy teams and served on its North American Operating Committee.
At Ford and USAA, he was part of senior management teams that helped bring to market innovative technologies like auto collision avoidance and remote deposit capture, a technology invented by USAA that allows the use of smart devices to deposit funds into our banking accounts.”
“President Donald Trump has hired his son’s brother-in-law to oversee an Energy Department office that apparently is dismantling some of former President Barack Obama’s climate change initiatives.
Lara Trump’s brother, Kyle Yunaska, has been named chief of staff of the Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis, E&E News reported on Wednesday. Lara Trump is married to Eric Trump, the president’s third child.
As chief of staff, Yunaska will advise Executive Director Sean Cunningham and his deputy Carol Battershell, according to the Energy Department website. But here’s where it gets interesting: Under Obama, the Energy Policy and Systems Analysis office oversaw initiatives to fight climate change, but it’s unclear if that approach will continue. In his prior job as a lobbyist, Cunningham reportedly helped develop a directive to subsidize coal and nuclear power.” Newsweek
