Catherine Ashton appoints 25 new heads of EU delegations

Catherine Ashton, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the Commission, announced today her intention to appoint 25 new Heads of the European Union Delegations around the world. These appointments are part of the 2011 rotation of heads of delegation and include 16 candidates from Member States diplomatic services, 7 from the EEAS and 2 from the European Commission. Among others, Gary Quince, the current head of the department Sustainable Growth and Development at the DG Devco (European Commission) is set to become the new head of the EU mission to Ethiopia and the African Union.

"For the second year I have been impressed by the quality of candidates for these important posts in the External Action Service. The opportunity to represent the EU in the world continues to attract the brightest and best diplomats, which is good news for a service whose success depends on the quality of its people.” […]

With these appointments, 45 of the 149 management positions in EU delegations will be held by diplomats on secondment from national Foreign Ministries. This means that in the second year of recruitment from the three Treaty sources, 30% of management posts will be occupied by national diplomats, which is very close to the 1/3 target.
