One of President Donald Trump's top aides, White House deputy chief of staff Rick Dearborn, will step down early next year to pursue work in the private sector.

"Rick loyally served the president for two and a half years and brought tremendous energy to the White House staff," White House chief of staff John Kelly told The Wall Street Journal. 

"He's a super guy and it breaks my heart to see him leave, but I look forward to his continued personal friendship and support for the president's agenda."

Dearborn previously worked on the Trump campaign, and was the executive director of the Trump transition team before he became the overseer of the White House's legislative affairs, political operation and public outreach as deputy chief of staff. He reportedly viewed tax reform as a "finale" to his time in the White House, and will remain on staff for another two to three months.

The Journal previously reported that Trump's White House faces "another round of senior departures" as Trump nears his one-year anniversary of taking office.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is the most high-profile name, and the most likely to leave, according to the newspaper. Just a few weeks ago, deputy national security adviser Dina Powell announced that she will step down in early 2018, according to The Hill.

"There will be significant turnover at the one-year mark," an unnamed senior administration official told the Journal. Another said: "You're going to see plenty of movement."
