Hogan Names Croghan New Deputy Chief of Staff

    Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) has a new deputy chief of staff.

    Diane Croghan will serve as deputy chief of staff for labor, housing, education, human services and health matters, Hogan’s office announced Tuesday.

    Croghan replaces Tiffany Robinson, who was recently appointed to be Maryland’s next labor secretary. Both women will move into the positions on July 31.

    Croghan currently serves as chief of staff at the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development where she advises the secretary on programs including Project C.O.R.E.

    Before joining the Hogan administration, Croghan served as chief of staff to former Anne Arundel County Executive Steven R. Schuh (R). Croghan has also worked for the General Assembly in the past, including as chief of staff for the House Republican Caucus.

    “Diane is an invaluable asset to our administration, and her wealth of experience in both the executive and legislative branches will benefit all Marylanders as she takes on some of our top priorities,” Hogan said in a statement.

    In a press release, Croghan said she was honored to take the new position and looks forward “to working every day to continue changing Maryland for the better.”
