Chief Administrative Officer and Deputy Managing Director Carla Grasso Leaving IMF

February 7, 2020

International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva
announced on Friday that Carla Grasso, Chief Administrative Officer and
Deputy Managing Director (DMD), would be leaving the Fund at the end of
February in the context of changes she will be making to the leadership

Ms. Grasso’s responsibilities included overseeing and coordinating the
IMF’s budget, human resources, information technology, general services and
internal audit functions. She also led the Fund’s capacity development work
to strengthen member countries’ economic institutions and train their
public officials.

Ms. Georgieva said that “I would like to thank Carla for all her patient,
persistent, impactful efforts. She has made a pivotal contribution to
improving the quality of the work environment for our staff—and the quality
of service to our membership.” She added that “Carla’s tireless effort in
support of strengthening our capacity development and securing a solid
foundation for capacity development financing through her work with donors,
was one of her signature achievements.”

Ms. Grasso said that “It was an honor to serve as a DMD at the Fund. I
believe strongly in the mission of the IMF and I have greatly appreciated
the opportunity to contribute across a broad range of business and IT
transformation initiatives which I expect will benefit the institution and
its 189 member countries in the years to come.”
