The Commission has appointed Jean-Luc Demarty, the current Director-General of its trade department as Hors Classe Adviser responsible for Multilateralism and WTO reform in the Secretariat-General. He would normally have retired from the Commission at the end of this month, but will continue to advise President Jean-Claude Juncker as of 1 June.
Two more appointments take the Commission a step further towards its target of 40% female representation in the Commission’s management by November. Clara de laTorre has been appointed as Deputy Director-General in its department for Climate Action, and Sandra Kramer as Director “EU-AU relations, West and East Africa” in its department for International Cooperation and Development. Women currently represent over 39% of all managers in the Commission.
