Martin Biurrun, French-Uruguayan, was born and lives in Montevideo, capital of Uruguay. From his Norman great-gandfather, decorated in the First World War, Martin inherited courage and determination and from his Basque grandfather, audacity and teamworking skills. At home, Martín lived surrounded by different political ideas (mother of center-right and leftist father), which allowed him to grow up with tolerance and respect values.
Communication consultant, he has a bachelor’s degree in corporative communication and specialized in institutions. Previously, he worked as an advisor in different teams of electoral campaign and he also has political experience in Montevideo where he was a Councilor.
In 2014, he left his Uruguayan political responsibilities, and was elected representative Consular Counselor of the French abroad for Uruguay district. He is, since 2016, the Vice-President (elected by his peers) of the Consular Council of the district. Between 2012 and 2014 he represented, in Uruguay, the Counselor of the French from Abroad for the Southern Cone, Marie-Christine Haritçalde (old representation system of the Assembly of the French from abroad).
