Governor Larry Hogan named today Amelia Chassé Alcivar as chief of staff, effective October 26, 2020. The search was led by acting chief of staff Keiffer J. Mitchell, Jr., who will continue to serve as chief legislative officer while assuming an expanded strategic portfolio as senior counselor to the governor.
“From day one, Keiffer has served as an incredible team leader, and I’m deeply grateful for his stepping up during a critical time,” said Governor Hogan in a statement. “I’m equally proud that Marylanders will continue to benefit from his wise counsel and extensive experience in his expanded role helping to shape the strategic vision of our administration.”
Chassé Alcivar returns to the administration after serving as communications director from 2018-2019 and as deputy communications director from 2016-2018. She has served as communications director for the Republican Governors Association. Before joining the Hogan administration in 2016 she held positions with Texas Governor Greg Abbott, America Rising PAC, and John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. A native of Maine, Chasse Alicvar is a graduate of George Washington University.
“I’m pleased to welcome back Amelia Chassé Alcivar to our team as chief of staff,” said Governor Hogan. “Amelia brings to the table a deep knowledge of our administration’s priorities and a management record of results that will be invaluable as we continue working to change Maryland for the better.”
