Mr. Gurría was born on May 8, 20150 in Tampico, Mexico, and joined the OECD after a long career in his country's Public Administration, where he held positions such as Secretary of Foreign Affairs and Secretary of Finance and Public Credit in the 1990s.

The Secretary General is the Chair of the Council, establishing the link between the national delegations and the Secretariat, and is assisted by one or more Deputy Secretaries-General. The Secretariat is composed of some 2,500 members who support the activities of the committees and carry out the work in response to the priorities decided by the OECD Council. The staff includes economists, lawyers, scientists and other professionals. Most staff members are based in Paris, but some work in OECD centres located in other countries.
