Mark G. Hambley -  Former US Ambassador to Qatar and Lebanon

==========================================================================

 

During over 35 years of service with the U.S. Government, Mark Hambley provided first-hand accounts to Washington about wars, coups, and extraordinary economic, social and political developments occurring in some of the most strategic and fascinating regions of the world.  Before serving as ambassador in Qatar and Lebanon, he served as Consul General in Alexandria and Jeddah, and earlier in Vietnam, Yemen, Jordan, Tunisia, Libya, the UK, and the United Nations.
Since retirement he continues to travel and work in the Middle East and South Asia in a variety of professional and personal capacities. He is a board member of "APOLLO International," a large security services company, as well as a trustee at the London-based "Next Century Foundation" which focuses on peace, reconciliation and the pursuit of human dignity in areas of conflict.  Since 2008, Mark has been on the Executive Committee of the "Middle East Policy Council" in Washington, and in 2012, he was appointed to the board of the London-based "Iman Foundation" which focuses on promoting dialogue and understanding among the diverse cultures and religions of the Middle East.  .In these capacities, Mark is a frequent visitor to Iraq, Israel, and the Palestinian territories, along with Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Yemen, and the Gulf.  He has just returned from the Middle East so will be able to address current as well as long term issues facing those countries.
