OECD appoints Fabrizia Lapecorella deputy secretary-general

The former tax official in Italy will take up her post in April.


The OECD announced the appointment of Fabrizia Lapecorella to a new post today, January 25, but she will not take up her duties until April 3.

During her OECD career, Lapecorella has served in different leadership roles and helped shape the BEPS project and the two-pillar solution to the digital economy. She was the chair of the OECD’s Fiscal Affairs Committee from 2021 until this year.

“Fabrizia brings significant experience and networks to the role following distinguished service as DG finance and as chair of the OECD Committee on Fiscal Affairs,” tweeted OECD Secretary-General Mathias Cormann.

Lapecorella was deputy chair of the Fiscal Affairs Committee for four years and before that had been a member of the Committee Bureau since 2012. She joined the BEPS Steering Group in 2016, supporting the project until she left the group last year.

Outside the OECD, Lapecorella has had a distinguished career in Italian policymaking. She served as director-general of finance in the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance from 2008 to 2022, during which she oversaw tax policy areas such as administration, technology and governance.

She is currently head of the Department for European Policies in the presidency of the Council of Ministers of Italy.

Lapecorella will serve as one of four deputies. She will be joining the OECD’s other deputy secretary-generals Kerri-Ann Jones, Yoshiki Takeuchi, and Ulrik Vestergaard Knudsen. This finally fulfils the OECD’s commitment to full gender parity of its senior leadership.
