At its 31 January meeting, the College of Commissioners appointed German MEP Markus Pieper (EPP/CDU) as the EU’s new SME Envoy. His recruitment, despite media reports claiming that other female candidates, from Member States under-represented in senior posts, scored better in the three-stage recruitment procedure, raises questions about the transparency of the process and the Commission president’s influence on the latter.
