Shahira Knight, the National Economic Council deputy director, may be looking to exit the White House, a source close to her told Politico.
The economic adviser has gotten interest from the private sector and she has had informal conversations about the next phase of her career as she looks to move on now that Larry Kudlow is set to be the National Economic Council director, the report said.
Knight was the primary aide in President Donald Trump’s administration during the creation of the tax reform bill, many people involved in the process reported.
Before her role in the White House, Knight was vice president of Fidelity Investments and also had experience on the House Ways and Means Committee, Politico reported.
A report in Politico on March 12 said that Knight was considered to lead the NEC, but she was not interested in the job.
One financial services lobbyist said that Knight could exit the job within six to eight weeks, the report said.
