Washington, D.C.—U.S. Senator Susan Collins introduced Anne Hall, the President’s nominee to be the Ambassador to Lithuania, at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing today.  Ms. Hall, a career member of the Foreign Service, is a resident of Blue Hill, Maine, and spends time there between her overseas tours in Europe, Asia, and South America. 

“Anne not only has a distinguished career in the Foreign Service with expertise in the Baltic States, but also has strong ties to the Great State of Maine,” Senator Collins told members of the Committee.  “I am impressed both by Anne’s extensive experience in the region and her clear-eyed view of the challenges facing this relatively small, but critically important NATO ally.  I am certain that Anne would do an excellent job representing the United States in Lithuania, as she has done throughout her career in the foreign service.”

Ms. Hall grew up in Orono and received her undergraduate degree from UMaine.  She is Acting Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.  Previously she was Director of Central European Affairs in the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, responsible for managing relations with Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Lichtenstein, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Switzerland.
