IAEA Management Team
The IAEA Secretariat relies on the guidance and leadership of its Director General and six Deputy Directors General who head the major departments.
The incumbent IAEA Director General is Mr. Yukiya Amano of Japan. He has held this post since 1 December 2009, replacing Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei of Egypt. Before being appointed to the IAEA's top job Mr. Amano held a number of high-level policy positions, including Chairman of the IAEA Board of Governors from 2005-2006.
A diplomat and scholar, Mr. Amano is closely familiar with the work of international organizations, particularly in the fields of disarmament and non-proliferation.
