Cities: Mexico City

His professional career has combined academia with government service and a stint of 3 years in the private sector as CEO of AVANTEL.

Paco has taught mostly at ITAM which conferred upon him the distinction of Emeritus, but also at Universidad Iberoamericana, Colegio de México and the National University.

Gil-Díaz has published in academic journals (including AER) and chapters in books on topics such as public finance, exchange rate policy, monetary and financial policy, macroeconomic management and deregulation of economic activity. Throughout his career, in his capacities as a public official, as an academic and as a private citizen, Gil-Díaz has played a role in advancing Mexico's market oriented policies.

His public service experience has had him alternate between the Central Bank and Mexico's Treasury Department. At the Treasury he first held the position of General Director of Planeación Hacendaría, followed by General Director of Revenue Policy, then Undersecretary for Revenue and finally as Treasury Secretary under President Fox up to 2006. At the Central Bank he started as economic analyst, headed the Research Department, with a final responsibility as member of the Bank's Board of Governors.
