White House political director David Simas on Monday was named CEO of the Obama Foundation, Politico reported.

He will work with Obama Foundation Chairman Marty Nesbitt and Executive Director Robbin Cohen to create the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago.

"In the year ahead, the Obama Foundation will continue the important work of creating a Presidential Center that inspires citizens and communities to take on big challenges," Simas said. "I am honored to be serving the President and First Lady and thrilled to be a part of working to fulfill this mission."

Simas was former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick's deputy chief of staff before becoming a deputy assistant to Obama.

Nesbitt called Simas "an invaluable addition to our team as we enter an important year for the Foundation."
