marsch“Yves Mersch is about to fulfil an ambition denied to the Luxembourg central bank governor for months in a fight over gender politics as he fills the vacant slot on the European Central Bank’s Executive Board.

After the longest battle over an appointment in the Frankfurt-based ECB’s 13-year history, the 63-year-old will tomorrow officially change job and become the sixth member of the central bank’s management team. His first working day will be Dec. 17, and the first Governing Council gathering he will attend in his new role takes place two days later. ”
