The Prime Minister's Office announced Wednesday that Ari Harrow, the head of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's bureau, will step down to join Netanyahu's campaign staff
Harrow took over from Gil Sheffer as chief of Netanyahu's bureau in March 2014, the second time he held that post.
Harrow became Netanyahu´s foreign affairs adviser in July 2007, when Netanyahu was the head of the Opposition, and was promoted to his bureau chief in February 2008. He remained in that position after Netanyahu became prime minister in 2009, and served in that post until leaving for health reasons in early 2010.
From 2010-2013, the American-born Harrow headed an international consulting firm.
