William Daley has been chosen by President Obama to serve as his new chief of staff, a senior administration official said Thursday morning.

Daley, the former Commerce secretary under Bill Clinton, will take over from Pete Rouse, who has been serving as interim chief of staff.

Rouse will be elevated to the role of "counselor to the president," a new position considered an advancement from his previous position as senior advisor.
