Yvan Mayeur was born in Etterbeek on 24 January 1960. He grew up in one of the most popular districts of Brussels: the Marolles. Social worker by training, he was appointed Mayor of the City of Brussels on 16 December 2013.
In 1995, he was appointed Chairman of the CPAS (Public Welfare Centre) of Brussels. Determined to modernize, he reorganized the management of the institution while redefining its social action in many areas. The role of the CPAS of Brussels is now more than only that of a financial aid. It also consists of social action in health, housing or employment.
As Chairman of IRIS (2005-2008), Mayeur participated in the creation and improving of the financial management of the network of Brussels public hospitals, with 2 main objectives: ensuring quality and accessibility for all citizens.
At the City of Brussels, Mayeur leads a long-time action to increase the number of quality housing with an accessible rent, in particular to meet the challenges of the demographic boom. He was asked to coordinate the housing policy (1000 Housing Plan) of the City of Brussels and its CPAS during the latest legislature.
With this long federal experience and some 18 years of social commitment as Chairman of the CPAS of Brussels, Yvan Mayeur will continue - in his role as Mayor - his battle against poverty and all forms of social exclusion.
