George Anthony Sifakis (born January 15, 1969) is a former United States federal government official and government relations professional who formerly served as the first Director of the Office of Public Liaison for the Donald Trump Administration.
Following his role on the Presidential Transition, assisting with the confirmation process of Wilbur Ross as Secretary of Commerce, Sifakis was appointed by President Trump on January 23, 2017, to be Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of the Office of Public Liaison, responsible for engaging the business community, including CEO's of the Fortune 500, non-profit and public sector leaders.
On March 6, 2017, Sifakis was appointed by President Trump as Assistant to the President and Director of the Office of Public Liaison, one of approximately 20 Senior White House staff directly reporting to the White House Chief of Staff. On August 18, 2017, multiple Trump administration sources acknowledged that Sifakis would be departing the White House in September.
Sifakis is Greek Orthodox. He received his BA from Rhode Island College and obtained a Paralegal certification from Northeastern University. In 2000, he received his Master of Science in Political Science from the Suffolk University Graduate School of Government. Sifakis also completed the Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education program on Governance and attended the Southern New England School of Law.
In November 2016, Sifakis was named to the Department of Commerce "landing team" as part of the transition process for President Donald Trump. Trump originally announced his intention to appoint Anthony Scaramucci to oversee the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in his administration, pending a review of Scaramucci's finances by the Office of Government Ethics. Sifakis joined the Administration as Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of Public Liaison on January 23, 2017 and was subsequently appointed Assistant to the President and later Director of the Office of Public Liaison on March 6, 2017.
An official White House statement, as reported by The Wall Street Journal's Michael C. Bender in an official Twitter post on August 18, 2017, included Sifakis' originally planned mid-September departure:
On September 15, 2017, Politico reported that Presidential Personnel Director John DeStefano would temporarily serve as interim Director of the Office of Public Liaison when Sifakis returned to the private sector at the end of the month.
