(CNN)Jen O'Malley Dillon will join President-elect Joe Biden's incoming administration as a deputy chief of staff, a source familiar with the matter tells CNN.

The expected move, first reported by NBC News, is the latest in a long line of expected senior White House hires as Biden moves to fill out his administration.

O'Malley Dillon was Biden's campaign manager, joining his team in March after he consolidated support among most of his primary rivals.

O'Malley Dillon will be joining Ron Klain, who was announced as Biden's incoming chief of staff last week, and Rep. Cedric Richmond, who sources tell CNN is expected to leave Congress and join the Biden White House in a senior role.

O'Malley Dillon has long told friends that she had no interest in working in the West Wing after the campaign, but after working in top jobs on numerous political campaigns -- including former Rep. Beto O'Rourke's failed 2020 primary campaign and both of Barack Obama's presidential campaigns -- the Democratic operative has never served in the White House.

O'Malley Dillon is expected to have the operations portfolio in the White House -- a role Jim Messina played in Obama's first term.
