Top Snyder Aide Takes White House Job

Jarrod Agen

Gov. Rick Snyder’s chief of staff has taken a new job at the White House.

Jarrod Agen is the new communications director for Vice President Mike Pence.

Agen was Snyder’s communications director before assuming the position of chief of staff 13 months ago. Agen helped shape the “Grand Bargain” that led to the Detroit bankruptcy deal. And he was a central figure in the Snyder administration’s response to the Flint water crisis.
