Joshua B. Bolten took over April 14, 2006, as President George W. Bush's Chief of Staff "with authority to do whatever he deemed necessary to stabilize Bush's presidency, and he has moved quickly with changes," Terence Hunt reported for the Associated Press.

In a White House shakeup, Joel Kaplan, who had been in "the No. 2 job in the White House budget office" under Bolten, was promoted to be Bush's Deputy Chief of Staff, taking over Karl Rove's responsibilities as Bush's chief policy coordinator, Hunt wrote.

Previously, Bolten was selected by President to be White House Chief of Staff to replace Andrew H. Card, Jr., who resigned March 28, 2006. [1]

Bolten, Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy, was Director of the Office of Management and Budget. [2]

"For the two years prior to joining the White House, Mr. Bolten was Policy Director of the Bush presidential campaign. For the five years preceding that, from 1994 to 1999, Mr. Bolten was Executive Director, Legal & Governmental Affairs, for Goldman Sachs International in London."


Bolten was "Policy director, Bush-Cheney 2000 presidential campaign and presidential transition; executive director for legal and government affairs, Goldman Sachs International in London; deputy assistant to President George H.W. Bush for legislative affairs; general counsel, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative; international trade counsel, Senate Finance Committee; private practice, O'Melveny & Myers." [3]
