Wim Duisenberg


In Washington D.C, at the IMF, Duisenberg shared a room with Jacques van Ypersele de Strihou, then a junior economist.

In 1997, he became President of the European Monetary Institute, the forerunner of the European Central Bank, taking over from Bilderberger Alexandre Lamfalussy. In 1998 he was made the first President of the European Central Bank. In 2003 he handed over to another Bilderberg Steering committee member, Jean-Claude Trichet.
