François Baroin is one of the leading motivational speakers on the political scene, having held several major posts in the French government and currently being the mayor of Troyes, the capital of the department of Aube in north-central France.
Among the positions that François has held are Overseas and Territorial Collectivities Minister (from 2005 to 2007) and Minister of the Interior in 2007, when Jacques Chirac was president. For the latter post, Baroin replaced Nicolas Sarkozy, who had left the government to campaign for becoming France’s next president.
Now one of France’s most respected legislators and political speakers, François went on to become Minister of the Budget, Public Accounts and State Reform (2010-2011) under Sarkozy, who was president by then, and Minister of the Economy, Finances, and Industry (2011-2012), again under Sarkozy. Baroin replaced Christine Lagarde who had moved on to become the International Monetary Fund’s Director General.
