Christine Lagarde    

President of the European Central Bank; Former Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund & Former French Finance Minister

Christine Lagarde was the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund. Having served her first five-year term, she was re-appointed in July 2016 for a second term. A national of France, she was previously French Finance Minister from June 2007 to July 2011, and had also served as France’s Minister of State for Foreign Trade for two years.

She held the top post at the firm until June 2005 when she was named to her initial ministerial post in France.
