Secretary-General of the European Commission
Martin Selmayr ▸ Facts ▸ Comments ▸ News ▸ Videos
Martin Selmayr is a European civil servant who has been the Secretary-General of the European Commission since 1 March 2018. Previously, he was Chief of Staff to the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, having previously worked as Juncker's campaign director and head of transition before he took office. Following his appointment as Juncker's chief of staff, Selmayr was widely described as one of the most influential figures within the European Commission. After taking office as Secretary-General, he was described in a debate in the European Parliament as "the most powerful bureaucrat in the world." A resident of Brussels since 2000, he is a member of the Christian Democratic and Flemish (CD&V) party of Belgium. He is considered by many to be close to the Christian Democratic Union of Germany and its leadership, but the European Commission said he has never been a member of that party.
