EMA nominates Emer Cooke as executive director to replace Guido Rasi
The EMA’s management board on Thursday nominated Emer Cooke from a short list of candidates to succeed Guido Rasi as the agency’s next executive director.
Rasi, whose second term as EMA executive director ends on November 15, served as Executive Director from 2011-2014 before being forced to step down after the European Union Civil Service Tribunal annulled his appointment.
With the nomination in hand, Cooke is set to address the European Parliament’s Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) on 13 July 2020 before her formal appointment can proceed. Once appointed, Cooke will be the fourth executive director in EMA’s 25-plus year history.
