Posted February 12, 2013 at 4:31pm

One of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s top aides will be leaving his position in the next few weeks, the Virginia Republican’s office announced Tuesday.

Kyle Nevins, who has served on the House Republican leadership staff for about a decade and has been Cantor’s deputy chief of staff for the past two years, will be departing in the next two weeks.

Nevins, one of CQ Roll Call’s Fabulous 50 staffers, has not yet announced what he will do next.

Chris Vieson will take over Nevins’ floor duties, becoming the director of floor operations in the office. He was deputy floor director in the 112th Congress and has worked for Cantor since 2009.

Matt Lira has been promoted to senior adviser from director of new media, and Aaron Cutler becomes a senior adviser for policy and outreach, moving over from the Energy and Commerce Committee staff.
