He worked from 1999 to 2002 as EU Competition Spokesman - one of the highest profile jobs in Brussels - spanning a period when mergers, cartels and other anti-trust cases, as well as the control of state subsidies, made headline news on a daily basis.

Over a period of five years, his responsibilities included the internal market and industrial policy, social affairs and the environment.
