As Secretary-General of the European Committee of the Regions (CoR), I am the head of an administration of 600 civil servants that implements decisions taken by the political bodies of the CoR, the Assembly of local and regional representatives, the Bureau, the Conference of Presidents of political groups and the President, and supports Members in their legislative and political activities.
I support the President in representing the CoR's interest vis-à-vis the other European Institutions and bodies and I manage day-to-day affairs relating to the administration, the budget and the communication.
The citizens of Europe are calling for a shift in respect to their involvement in areas that matter most to them. There is a clear mandate to all EU-institutions to listen more to the citizens and to show them that they matter. I am convinced that the CoR representing local and regional politicians who are the closest to the citizens can play an important role in this context.
