WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), Ranking Member on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, today appointed Nicholas C. Geale as the director of Oversight and Investigations for HELP Committee Republicans. 

“Nick has been a valuable member of my staff for more than two years and I am pleased that he will now be taking on a new role for HELP Committee Republicans,” said Senator Enzi.  “His primary responsibilities will include oversight of government programs, and working with agency Inspectors General and the Government Accountability Office.  I look forward to Nick’s continued service to the HELP Committee and our nation.”

Before becoming director of oversight and investigations, Mr. Geale served as oversight and investigations counsel on the Committee for two years.  Prior to joining the HELP Committee, Mr. Geale worked for the U.S. Department of Labor, first as an attorney/advisor to the Solicitor and then the Counselor to the Deputy Secretary under Secretary Elaine L.
