REI Executive Tapped For Interior; Geithner Joins Council On Foreign Relations
Wed, 06 Feb 2013 12:03:00 -0500
Sally Jewell, CEO of the outdoors equipment retailer REI, is President Obama's choice to be the next secretary of interior, according to reports from The Associated Press and other news outlets.
She would succeed Secretary Ken Salazar, who announced last month that he would be departing.
Jewell, AP writes, joined REI in 2000. Before that she "worked in commercial banking and as an engineer for Mobil Oil Corp."
The president is expected to make the news official Wednesday afternoon at the White House.
In other news related to the Obama cabinet's comings and goings, the Council on Foreign Relations says that departing Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is joining the organization as a senior fellow.
The president has nominated his chief of staff, Jacob "Jack" Lew, to succeed Geithner at Treasury.
