Trump Names Kellyanne Conway as Counselor to the President

Written by Leonora Cravotta

President-elect Donald Trump named Kellyanne Conway as Counselor to the President on December 22. Conway, who served as Trump’s third campaign manager, holds the distinction of being the first female manager of a successful presidential campaign.

The former pollster who holds a law degree has also been credited with helping Trump to nuance his communication style in a manner which enabled him to simultaneously appeal to a broader audience while maintaining his unique persona.

The Trump campaign also announced the selection of Republican National  Committee Communications Director Sean Spicer as White House Press Secretary. The Spicer selection presents a good synergy with Trump’s Chief of Staff, former Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.

Other Communications Team members include Hope Hicks as Director of Strategic Communications, Jason Miller as Director of Communications and Dan Scavino as Director of Social Media.
