The mandate of our Secretary-General, Mr Eduardo Ruiz García, will end on 31 May 2020.
Mr Ruiz García has been Secretary-General since 2009 and has been at the heart of key projects and initiatives that have transformed the Court into a modern, efficient, knowledge-based organisation, and contributed in a decisive manner to raising the visibility and reputation of the Court among its stakeholders.
The President and Members of the Court would like to express their most sincere gratitude for Mr Ruiz García's professionalism and strong commitment to the European Union over his 30-year career at the Court. We wish him success in his future endeavours.
Until the recruitment process for a new Secretary-General has been completed, Audit Director Philippe Froidure has been appointed acting Secretary-General with effect from 1 June 2020.
