Nikolis Smith

Confidential Assistant, Office of Management and Budget

As part of Nikolis Smith's role with the Office of Management and Budget, he works with agencies and the private sector to ensure that small businesses have access to the $500 billion in government contracts that go out each year.  Prior to his appointment, Smith served as a special liaison to the former Japanese vice minister of foreign affairs. While studying in Japan, Smith met and married his wife. Together they love taking their 10-month-old son, Maxwell, on long walks at the park. (Photo: Chantal Costen/BET)
