Claver-Carone Becomes First US Official to Run Inter-American Development Bank
Mauricio Claver-Carone, Deputy Assistant to U.S. President Trump and Senior Director for Western Hemisphere Affairs at the U.S. National Security Council, becomes the fifth President of the Inter-American Development Bank.



WASHINGTON, D.C. – Mauricio J. Claver-Carone was elected President of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) on Saturday during an electronic meeting of the Bank’s Board of Governors.

He will take office on Oct. 1, 2020, for a five-year term. As President, he will oversee the operations of the IDB Group, which comprises the IDB, IDB Invest and IDB Lab.

Claver-Carone will succeed current President Luis Alberto Moreno. The Board of Governors also issued on Saturday a resolution expressing gratitude to President Moreno for his service.

Claver-Carone is currently Deputy Assistant to the U.S. President and Senior Director for Western Hemisphere Affairs at the U.S. National Security Council. He previously served as U.S. Representative to the International Monetary Fund and as Senior Advisor to the Under Secretary for International Affairs at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Rollins College, Juris Doctor from The Catholic University of America and Master of Laws in International and Comparative Law from Georgetown University Law Center.

To be elected President, a candidate must receive a majority of the total voting power of the IDB’s member countries as well as the support of at least 15 of the 28 regional member countries (26 borrowing member countries, plus Canada and the United States). The IDB has a total of 48 member countries, with Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and offices in all borrowing countries as well as in Europe and Asia.

The Board of Governors is the Bank’s highest authority. Each member country appoints a Governor, whose voting power is proportional to the capital in the Bank subscribed by his or her country. Governors are typically finance ministers, central bank presidents, or other high-ranking officials.

The Board of Governors holds annual meetings to review Bank operations and make key policy decisions. It also occasionally holds special meetings, including to elect a President.

Mauricio J. Claver-Carone will be the IDB’s fifth President and the first U.S. official to lead the bank. He follows Luis Alberto Moreno (2005-2020); Enrique V. Iglesias (1988-2005); Antonio Ortiz Mena (1971-1988); and Felipe Herrera (1960-1971).
