Deputy Chief Negotiator - Special UK Task Force
As Mr Barnier’s second in command, Weyand will play a key role in discussions with Britain during the process of finalising the Brexit deal.
Weyand has extensive experience in representing world leaders, having chaired G7 and G8 summits in the past. She will act independently of her German capital, working instead for the broader European interest.
She is an expert on European trade laws, and is now seen as a symbol of German clout in the negotiation process.
