Media Release Appointment of the Head of Domestic Markets Department

Dr Marion Kohler has been appointed to the position of Head of Domestic Markets Department. The Bank considered a competitive field of internal and external candidates for this role, which had become vacant as a result of senior staff promotions and consequent rotations in December.

Dr Kohler has been a Deputy Head of International Department at the Reserve Bank of Australia since 2015. Prior to this, she worked in a number of roles in Economic Analysis (including as Deputy Head) and Economic Research Departments. Marion returned to the Bank in early 2011 after spending two years at the Bank for International Settlements. Prior to her appointment to the Bank in 2001, she spent several years at the Bank of England.

Dr Kohler holds a PhD in economics from the European University Institute, Florence (Italy) and has published extensively on macroeconomics, including on monetary policy, exchange rates and financial crises.
