Schwab praises Shaun Donnelly’s Service to USTR

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Trade Representative Susan C. Schwab today announced that Shaun Donnelly, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Europe and the Middle East will depart the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to return to the private sector.

“Shaun Donnelly has contributed immensely to the president’s trade agenda during his time at USTR” said Ambassador Schwab. “Shaun has had a distinguished career of public service, and we at USTR wish him the very best in the next stage of his career.”

During his service to USTR, Mr. Donnelly was a key member of Ambassador Schwab’s team with daily responsibilities involving trade policy with Europe and the Middle East. Mr. Donnelly came to USTR following a thirty-three year career as a Foreign Service officer at the U.S. Department of State. During that time, Mr. Donnelly served for four and a half years as Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary in the State Department’s Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs as well as U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Mr. Donnelly also served as Deputy Ambassador in U.S. embassies in Tunisia and Mali, and as an Economic-Commercial officer in our embassies in Egypt, Ethiopia, and Senegal.

A native of Culver, Indiana, Mr. Donnelly holds a B.A. in economics from Lawrence University and an M.A. in economics from Northwestern University.

As the NAM announced last month, Ambassador Donnelly will be joining the association as Senior Director for International Business Policy.
