Marin Ceaușescu (1916 – December 28, 1989) was a Romanian economist and diplomat, the older brother of Communist Romania's President Nicolae Ceaușescu.

He graduated from the Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest. Starting in 1974, Ceaușescu headed the Romanian Economic Agency in Vienna. He was believed to have been the conduit through whom Nicolae allegedly transferred millions of United States dollars into Swiss bank accounts.[1] He was found hanged in the basement of the Romanian Embassy in Vienna, three days after his brother was executed in the Romanian Revolution of 1989. The police said it was a suicide.

Austria's Interior Minister, Franz Löschnak, said that Austrian officials suspected that Marin Ceauşescu worked for the Romanian security service.[2]

He left two daughters, Mihaela (m. Moraru) and Gabriela.
