- But Kan is not being seriously considered for a spot on the Federal Reserve board, according to a White House source familiar with the nomination process.
Department of Transportation Undersecretary Derek Kan is not being seriously considered for a spot on the Federal Reserve board, according to a Trump administration source familiar with the nomination process.
"Kan is not under consideration," the source told Business Insider on the condition of anonymity.
News reports on Friday said the White House was thinking of nominating Kan for one of the two open seats on the Board of Governors.
Kan became an adviser to Elaine Chao, the federal transportation secretary, in 2017 after working as the general manager at the ride-hailing company Lyft. Previously, he served on the board of directors for Amtrak under President Barack Obama.
Kan could not immediately be reached for comment. The Department of Transportation did not respond to an email inquiry.
