HONOLULU — A person familiar with the matter says President Barack Obama is considering naming former Commerce Secretary William Daley for a top White House job, possibly chief of staff.
Daley is an executive at JPMorgan Chase and brother of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley. The White House has been looking for ways to bring someone with a business background into the administration.
Obama's first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, resigned last year to run for Chicago mayor. Interim chief of staff Pete Rouse has been leading a staff review that is expected to lead to some shake-ups in the West Wing.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Daley's consideration was first reported by Bloomberg News.
