Prof. Dr. Mario MONTI

Former European Commissioner for Internal Market, Financial Services and Taxation and Former European Commissioner for Competition, European Commission, Brussels; President, Bocconi University, Milan

 Mario Monti is president of Bocconi University, Milan. He is also European chairman of the Trilateral Commission and honorary president of Bruegel, the European think-tank he launched in 2005. As the EU-appointed coordinator for the electricity interconnection between France and Spain, he brokered an agreement between the two heads of governments in June 2008. He was a member of the Attali Committee on French economic growth, set up by President Sarkozy (2007-2008). He was for ten years a member of the European Commission, in charge of the Internal market, Financial services and Tax policy (1995-1999), then of Competition (1999-2004). In addition to a number of high-profile cases (e.g. GE/Honeywell, Microsoft, the German Landesbanken), he introduced radical modernization reforms of EU antitrust and merger control and led, with the US authorities, the creation of the International Competition Network (ICN).
 Mr. Monti graduated from Bocconi and Yale University. Prior to joining the European Commission, he had been professor of economics and rector at Bocconi University.
