Jared Kushner, Rex Tillerson, Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway: These are just a few of the people filling major roles in President Donald Trump's administration. Trump has also selected a number of New Yorkers, including Vincent Viola and Carl Icahn.
All the Cabinet nominees and ambassadors require confirmation by the Senate, which began hearings on Jan. 10, 2017. The adviser roles, however, do not need approval from Congress.
Here's a look at the people Trump has nominated or appointed.
Heather Wilson: Air Force secretary

Bush. She currently serves as the president of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. Above, Wilson with former President George W. Bush in 2006. (Credit: Getty Images / Paul J. Richards)
