Mr Fagan, who will take up the position in October, joins the Central Bank from the European Central Bank, where he held a number of key roles. Most recently he was senior advisor in the Directorate-General Research. Prior to this, he headed up the Monetary Policy Research and Econometric Modelling Divisions.
Welcoming his appointment, deputy governor Stefan Gerlach, said: “Gabriel brings a significant level of experience and expertise to the role and I look forward to working closely with him.’
