Connie Milstein will be Ambassador to Malta

US President Joe Biden has nominated Constance J. Milstein, a property giant, attorney and social entrepreneur, for the post of US Ambassador to Malta.

Milstein was served as a Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army in the Obama administration, and has played key roles in NGOs in international relations, global education, and democracy building, which include Seton Hall University’s School of Diplomacy, United Nations Association, Refugees International, and UN Watch.

Daughter of New York real estate developer Seymour Milstein, she has an extensive resume spanning the business and philanthropic worlds. With her brother, Philip Milstein, she co-founded Ogden CAP Properties, a New York residential real estate company.

She is a longtime donor to Democratic causes, according to the Federal Elections Commission, having made hundreds of donations to candidates and Democrat-affiliated committees in recent decades. She’s also supported the campaigns of some Republicans, including former Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tennesse) and John McCain (R-Arizona), as well as Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Arkansas).

Days after the 2020 Democratic National Convention, Milstein made a contribution of $725,000 to the Biden Victory Fund.

Milstein resides in New York, speaks French, Italian and Spanish, has a daughter and is married to Saïd Abu-Kaud.

Her nomination has still to be confirmed by the US Senate.
