Adam Kennedy, the White House deputy communications director, is leaving the administration at the end of the month.
Kennedy, who was also a deputy assistant to the president, led the White House’s rapid response efforts on impeachment and other issues, according to Politico. He had worked at the White House since President Donald Trump was sworn in.
Kennedy is expected to enter the private sector after he leaves the administration. The Wall Street Journal reported that he had supervised a rapid response team of 13, which he put together during the Robert Mueller hearings and the Senate impeachment trial.
“Adam has been a fantastic colleague at the White House and has been instrumental in providing strategic communications to advance the president’s priorities,” senior adviser Jared Kushner said in a statement.
Stephanie Grisham, White House press secretary and communication director, said: “Saying that we are sad to see him go is an understatement.”
Julian Hahn, who currently serves as director of rapid response and surrogate operations for the White House, will replace Kennedy, Politico said.
