The US embassy in Luxembourg welcomed its new deputy chief of mission Michael Konstantino, who will serve as ambassador Tom Barrett’s top advisor.

Konstantino joined the US embassy on 27 June succeeding Casey Mace in the role of deputy chief of mission. He arrives in this position after serving as deputy director of the office of South Central European Affairs.

“I am excited to assume the Deputy Chief of Mission role in Luxembourg and look forward to leading Ambassador Barrett’s incredible team.  In the current geopolitical climate, the close cooperation between the United States and the Grand Duchy has taken on even greater importance,” said Konstantino.

The embassy’s new deputy chief’s previous assignments include Skopje, Frankfurt, Cotonou, Tel Aviv, Gaborone, Port-au-Prince, and the Bureau of Intelligence and Research in Washington. He is also the current president of the LGBTQI+ association GLIFAA, representing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender personnel and their families in the United States Department of State.
