President Trump has nominated Dan Brouillette, deputy secretary of the Department of Energy, to serve as the next secretary of DOE, The Hill reported Friday. Trump’s announcement on Twitter came a day after Energy Secretary Rick Perry announced his plan to step down from his post at the end of the year.

Brouillette assumed his current role in August 2017. He previously served as senior vice president and public policy lead at financial services firm USAA and a VP at Ford Motor.

He was also a chief of staff to the House Energy and Commerce Committee and served as assistant secretary at DOE for two years starting in 2001.
