Brianna Earle, who has been serving as acting deputy chief of staff for outreach, was officially named as such Friday by Gov. Phil Murphy.

“Brianna has been a key player and an instrumental asset to my administration since Day One,” Murphy said. “Across the state and beyond, she has built meaningful relationships that have been consequential to the success of our administration. From collaborating with faith and community leaders to advocates and labor unions, Brianna has approached her position with empathy, compassion and understanding. I look forward to her continued success as she works to advance affordability and opportunity for all New Jerseyans.”

“It is an honor to serve the Murphy administration and the state of New Jersey, and I am thrilled by the opportunity to build on the incredible progress we have achieved since 2018,” Earle said. “It is a privilege to work with the many communities that make up our great state and it is essential they feel their voices are represented in government. I thank Gov. Murphy for this opportunity and look forward to the work ahead.”

Prior to her service as acting deputy chief of staff, Earle served as director of public engagement in the Governor’s Office from 2018 to 2022.
