ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Gov. Martin O'Malley's chief of staff is leaving the post to work for a philanthropic organization.
The Goldseker Foundation announced early Thursday that Matthew Gallagher has been named president and chief executive officer.
Gallagher has been O'Malley's chief of staff for nearly four years. Before that, he was O'Malley's deputy chief of staff. He also worked for O'Malley when he was Baltimore's mayor. In Baltimore, Gallagher was director of CitiStat, a government performance mechanism program.
At the Goldseker Foundation, Gallagher is replacing Timothy Armbruster, who has been president of the organization for 34 years. Gallagher starts in June.
