Congratulations to Thibaud Vergé who has just been appointed Chief Economist of the French Competition Authority. Thibaud Vergé  is a very strong economist who, amongst other things, co-authored influential pieces on vertical agreements with Patrick Rey. See here.

In addition to this, Carlos Martinez-Mongay (Spanish, previously head of unit in DG Ecofin) and Olivier Guersent (French, previously head of DG Competition’s Cartels Directorate) are poised to become heads of the cabinets of J. Almunia (competition) and M. Barnier (internal market and financial services).
