WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Mediation Board (NMB) is pleased to announce the selection of Michael Kelliher to fill the Deputy Chief of Staff position within the agency. In this capacity, he will work with the Chief of Staff across all of the offices at the Board; in addition, he will assume first line supervisory responsibility for the Mediation program at the Board.
