Jeffrey Wexler ’10 named White House Director of COVID-19 Operations
President Joe Biden has officially named Jeffrey Wexler ’10 the White House Director of COVID-19 Operations.
For Wexler, this marks a natural progression after he served as the Director of COVID-19 Preparedness for the Biden-Harris Transition, and on the Biden-Harris Campaign’s COVID-19 Preparedness team. Prior to his role on the campaign, he served as Senior Director of COVID-19 Preparedness and Senior Director of Hall Management for the 2020 Democratic National Convention.
An international relations major at Conn, Wexler has held a diverse range of positions in politics and public policy. He began his career as a press assistant in the U.S. Senate before accepting increasingly prominent roles, including a stint as the Chief Operating Officer at the U.N. Foundation’s Global Climate Action Summit. In 2014, President Barack Obama appointed Wexler as Director of Operations and Advance for the U.S. Small Business Administration—a position he held until 2017.
