Los Angeles Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt is about to be nominated as the US Ambassador to France and Monaco, according to a White House report.

Ms McCourt is a 63-year-old businesswoman, rather than a career diplomat, who has founded several successful companies and co-owned the Los Angeles’ Major League Baseball team.

She speaks French and has lived extensively abroad where she has been active in business ventures with a focus on sport, law, finance, education and real estate.

Ms McCourt is a graduate with a Bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University before studying law at University of Maryland School of Law. She also earned a Master’s from MIT/Sloan School of Management.
