Governor Hogan appointed Amelia Chassé Alcivar as his new Chief of Staff on Tuesday, according to an official press release.

Effective Oct. 26, Chassé Alcivar will take over for Keiffer J. Mitchell, who served as the Acting Chief of Staff since mid-August. Alcivar makes her return to the administration after having served as communications director from 2018-2019 and as deputy communications director from 2016-2018.

“I’m pleased to welcome back Amelia Chassé Alcivar to our team as chief of staff,” said Governor Hogan in a statement on Tuesday. “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.”

After departing the administration, Chassé Alcivar served as communications director for the Republican Governors Association.

“I’m deeply honored for the opportunity to serve Governor Hogan in this new capacity and to work alongside the fantastic team he has built,” said Chassé Alcivar. “Now it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work to support the governor’s bipartisan record of protecting the health and safety of our families and our schools, strengthening our economy, and delivering for Marylanders.”

In his acting role, Mitchell led the search process for the permanent Chief of Staff. He will continue to serve as chief legislative officer while “assuming an expanded strategic portfolio as senior counselor to the governor.”
