Central Bank Governors

    Following is a list of chief executives of 200 national central banks and monetary authorities. In most cases, the chief executive is a governor but the function can also be held by a president or chairman.  
    Some countries join a regional central bank, such as the Bank of Central African States (BEAC) or the European Central Bank (ECB), and in these cases the name of the regional bank is listed instead of the national central bank.
    For members of BEAC, the name of the BEAC governor is listed, not the representatives from the member national central banks. For the other three regional central banks, the names listed are those of the national representatives in the regional body.
    (F) denotes a female chief executive. As of April 1, 2019, 12 central banks were headed by women, either on an interim or full-time basis: Aruba, Belize, Cuba, Ecuador, Israel, Lesotho, Macedonia, Malaysia, Russia, Samoa, Serbia and Seychelles.
