Julian Smith, MP for Skipton and Ripon in North Yorkshire, has been promoted to Chief Whip of the Conservative Party at Westminster.
The move comes after Prime Minister, Theresa May, named Scarborough's Gavin Williamson as Secretary of State for Defence.
Mr Williamson had held the role as Chief Whip before Michael Fallon resigned as Defence Secretary amid allegations of inappropriate behaviour.
Mr Williamson was born in Scarborough on 25 June 1976.
He went to Raincliffe Comprehensive School and Scarborough Sixth Form College, where he studied Government and Politics, before gaining a Bachelor of Science from the University of Bradford.
Mr Williamson has run the Tory whips office since last year.
