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.

Fashion Designer Alessandra Vicedomini is Monaco Life's fashion contributor, keeping readers up to date on all things couture.[ihc-hide-content ihc_mb_type="show" ihc_mb_who="2" ihc_mb_template="1" ] Walking around Paris, I can’t help but notice that people wear more black and experiment very little, despite the fact Fashion Week gathers eccentric styles and new trends, along with provocative figures walking around the Champs Elysées and St Honoré. I worked all day with a New York client on the new collection in a very nice boutique hotel at place de l’Opera Edouard Vii, which I highly recommend. It is brand new and beautifully decorated, with haute couture pictures hanging all over the place. Afterwards, I took my NY client for dinner at Costes, "the" establishment with its incredible decor, magical atmosphere, and glamorously dressed waitresses with their short draped tunics and blazer-dress style with see-through lace bras pinned with Swarovski brooches and – rigorously - cow-boy boots. Their uber-contemporary look contrasts the classic Parisian style: a woman who is perpetually thin, young, artfully disheveled-yet-bougie, donning a Breton top and a vintage Chanel bag and who doesn't brush her hair. Her only thing is mat red lipstick. BTW... Chanel’s windows in monocrome sequins were outstanding! [/ihc-hide-content]
