Rahm Emanuel's Top Aide QUITS: Sarah Feinberg Heading To Bloomberg

Sarah Feinberg, a top White House staffer and aide to Rahm Emanuel, will be leaving the Obama Administration for a position at Bloomberg. (Feinberg is also the wife of White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer).

The massive media company announced Feinberg's new position as their director of communication and business strategy efforts Wednesday in a statement:

Bloomberg L.P. today announced that Sarah Feinberg will join the Company next month as a director of Bloomberg's communication and business strategy efforts, with an added focus on expanding Bloomberg's presence globally. She will also assume a senior leadership position in a new Bloomberg division that will offer a comprehensive information service about the business implications of government action and public policy to be made available broadly starting early next year.

In a press release, Kevin Sheekey, head of government relations and public affairs at Bloomberg praised Feinberg:

"Her experience at the intersection of communications, politics and public policy, her track record of managing complex issues and teams and her entrepreneurial spirit will be tremendous assets at Bloomberg."

Feinberg responded in the release:

"As Bloomberg expands its presence in Washington and prepares to launch its government information division, I'm looking forward to being a part of an organization with such an impressive record of innovation and entrepreneurship."

Feinberg began working with Emanuel in 2005, when he was Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman as Congressman from Illinois. She ran communications for the Democratic committee.
