While the dust continues to settle following last week's election across Europe for the European Parliament, the future career of current Competition Commissioner, Denmark's Margrethe Vestager, remains uncertain. But the commissioner's current head of private office, Ditte Juul Jørgensen, just found out what she will be doing from Aug. 1: She has been appointed Director-General of the European Commission's energy division, DG Energy, writes the Commission in a press release.

Juul Jørgensen has been head of the Competition Commissioner's cabinet sine November 2014.
