Julie Kozack is the IMF’s Director of Strategic Communications (COM). “Julie’s stellar career at the Fund over more than two decades reflects not only her standing as a top-notch economist and institutional leader, including as mission chief and lead negotiator on high-profile crisis countries, but also her exceptional communication skills.” Ms. Georgieva said. “Julie is well known for her strategic thinking and innovative ideas, as well as her capacity for building consensus and relationships. She is also an experienced manager who works collaboratively, and always has in mind the institution and our member countries. I believe these skills will benefit COM, the Fund, and more widely, our membership.
