Steffen Seibert is a German former journalist and television anchor, and the current head of the German governmental press- and information-agency, which resembles the British Central Office of Information, making him the de facto press secretary of the Chancellor's office. He is officially ranked as an undersecretary of state.
Since late 2016, Seibert has been a member of the German government's cabinet committee on Brexit at which ministers discuss organizational and structural issues related to the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union.
