She succeeds Virginie Beaumeunier, who held this position from January 2018 to December 2022 and joined the Inspectorate General of Finance as Inspector General in January 2023.

Sarah Lacoche began her career at the Ministry of Finance as a debt expert at the Paris Club.

At the end of her four-year "tour", Sarah Lacoche held a number of management positions in major public organizations: head of the strategic steering division at the Agence Française du Développement (AFD) in 2013, director of administration and then deputy CEO of the Agence Nationale de la Rénovation Urbaine (ANRU) in 2016, director of the finance department at the Banque des Territoires in 2020. She also became Inspector General of Finance in 2020.

As DGCCRF, Sarah Lacoche will be responsible for leading the DGCCRF's support, control and investigation activities in the face of three major challenges: defending the purchasing power of the French, the environmental transition, and the digitalization of consumption patterns (particularly the regulation of influencers) and markets.
