Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has tapped former Jerusalem
official Eyal Haimovsky as his new bureau chief, the permanent
replacement for Natan Eshel, who resigned in February amid
accusations that he sexually harassed an employee.
Gil Sheffer, an aide to Netanyahu, served as interim bureau chief in
the meantime. Sheffer recommended Haimovsky, whom he knew from his
work at the municipality.
Haimovsky, 38, was until recently the vice president of the Jerusalem
Development Authority. He is married with two children and holds an
engineering degree and an MBA.
According to Netanyahu´s aides, Haimovsky will effectively be
Sheffer´s deputy. He will be responsible for the prime minister´s
schedule and coordinate the work of Netanyahu´s advisers.
