Timothy Harleth, who worked for Mandarin Oriental hotels in D.C. and NY before joining one of the Trumps' flagship hotels a year ago, will take the crucial position overseeing the staff of housekeepers, butlers and others who work in the first family's living quarters and maintain the executive mansion.

Melania Trump blew everyone away at the White House Thursday when she showed up in a gorgeous white dress alongside President Donald Trump as they hosted their first Congressional Picnic. Harleth will begin his appointment at the White House on Monday, July 3.

The chief usher manages all White House residence activities and oversees staffs of butlers, maids, chefs, florists and electricians.
