The European Commission decided today to appoint Mr Julien Guerrier to the position of Principal Adviser in the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW), and to second him, for a period of four years, to the function of Director of the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized enterprises (EASME).

The term is renewable once. The date of effect will be determined later. Mr Guerrier, a French national, joined the Commission's Industry department in 1994. Throughout his career, he held a variety of management positions.

In 1996, he headed the Brussels office of the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation, a non-profit joint venture between the European Commission and the Japanese government, and was later Deputy Head of Unit in DG Trade.

Between 2008 and 2011, he was the centre's General Manager and First Counsellor to the EU Delegation to Japan. Back to Brussels, Mr Guerrier became Head of Unit “Enterprise Policy & Support Programmes” in Directorate-General (DG) Enterprise and Industry. In his role, he coordinated the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework for the DG and worked on the Competitiveness of Enterprises and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (COSME) programme.

He is currently Head of Unit “Corporate Management, Budget & Administration” in the Commission's Secretariat-General.
