Keith Schiller is the current Director of Oval Office Operations. Prior to appointment in the Trump administration, Schiller worked as the Director of Security for The Trump Organization and was the personal bodyguard to Donald Trump.
Schiller started working for Donald Trump in 1999 as a part-time bodyguard. He became Trump's security director in 2004. Schiller made headlines in 2015 when he hit a protester outside Trump Tower. He was appointed Director of Oval Office Operations after Trump assumed the office of the president in January 2017. In this role he accompanied Jared Kushner on his visit to Iraq and sat in on meetings.
Schiller was selected as Trump's envoy to deliver a letter of termination to FBI director James Comey. The following week, Schiller accidentally made Secretary of Defense James Mattis' cell phone number public when a photograph of Schiller carrying papers with the hand-written number on a sticky note was published in the Washington Post.
