Brian Christopher Deese is the Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget. He previously worked at the United States National Economic Council as special assistant to the president for economic policy. Following the 2008 presidential election, he served as a member of the Economic Policy Working Group for the Obama-Biden transition. He emerged as "one of the most influential voices" in the Obama Administration relative to the auto industry, and specifically the Chrysler and GM workouts. He has appeared in videos posted on change.gov by the transition team. Before joining the transition team, he was deputy economic policy director for the 2008 Barack Obama presidential campaign and, before that, for Gene Sperling in the 2008 Clinton campaign. He graduated from Middlebury College in 2000 with a degree in Political Science and from Yale Law School in 2009. Previously, he was a senior policy analyst for economic policy at the Center for American Progress. Deese also worked as a research assistant at the Center for Global Development, hired by founder Nancy Birdsall, according to The New York Times, where he co-authored the book Delivering on Debt Relief. In November of 2011, Deese was included on The New Republic's list of Washington's most powerful, least famous people.
