Martin Merlin, the administrator in charge of supplementary pension provision within the internal market DG of the European Commission and a high-profile figure during the recent launch of the commission’s draft directive is to leave his current role in January.
Merlin is moving within the commission to become assistant to John Mogg, director general of the internal market division. “John Mogg always has an assistant for financial services and financial markets, horizontal issues and I shall be doing that,” comments Merlin. “I will notably be involved in supervising the implementation of the action plan for financial services.”
Merlin will leave his current pensions role at the commission on January 8.
