Frederic Jung was appointed Consul General of France in San Francisco on August 28, 2020. Originally from the Alsace region of France, he is a graduate of the Institute of Political Studies in Strasbourg.

He joined the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs in 2004.

The various positions he held in Paris and abroad led him to develop a particular interest in the United Nations and the European Union.

In New York, from 2009 on, he was a negotiator on African issues at the French Mission to the United Nations, before becoming the Mission’s spokesperson until 2014. He then moved to Brussels to become the spokesperson for the Permanent Representation of France to the European Union, dealing in particular with the eurozone, migration and security issues at the European level.
