Invest Europe has appointed Martin Bresson as Director of Public Affairs to lead the association’s advocacy work with high-ranking European policymakers and regulators.
Bresson joins from Rud Pedersen Public Affairs where he was Partner, Group Head of Financial Services and oversaw client advice on financial services and complex corporate issues. He will head Invest Europe’s existing team of three experienced public affairs staff who represent the interests of the association’s 650 private equity, venture capital, infrastructure and long-term investor members in Brussels.
“Martin is a highly experienced public affairs professional with in-depth knowledge of European financial services as well as corporate topics, such as competition, tax and trade,” said Invest Europe CEO Eric de Montgolfier. “His track record at an industry, national and European Union level, combined with his strong network of contacts and reputation in Brussels, make him a valuable addition to the team.”
A Danish national, Bresson started his career at leading industry associations in Denmark. He subsequently spent a decade working at the Danish Ministry for Business and Economic Affairs, responsible for EU policies, culminating in his role negotiating key financial services, industry and internal market files during the Danish Presidency of the EU in 2012. Since 2012, he has worked in the private sector in Brussels advising clients on European issues.
Bresson holds a Master of Law degree from the University of Copenhagen, as well as post-graduate diplomas in Business Administration. He has for a number of years been assistant professor at the University of Copenhagen where he has taught students about EU law and European institutions’ decision making processes.
