Maguy Maccario Doyle became ambassador of Monaco to the United States on Dec. 3, 2013, having previously served as Monaco’s longtime consul general in New York. Ambassador Maccario Doyle started her U.S. career at the Monaco Government Tourist Office in New York in 1976 and was appointed director for North America in 1994.
In 1995, Prince Rainier III appointed her consul of Monaco in New York, then consul general in 1997, making her the first Monégasque woman worldwide to hold the position of career consul. Under her direction, the consulate organized promotional and philanthropic events to benefit charitable endeavors, including the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation-USA and the Princess Grace Foundation-USA.
As director of the Monaco Government Tourist Office, her responsibilities included the development of leisure and group business travel to the principality. She also initiated numerous cultural and cross-promotional programs, including the successful annual “Monaco Takes New York” marketing campaign (which spread to other U.S. cities).
In 2007, she was the driving force behind the internationally lauded “A Celebration of Grace” series of events that raised more than $1.5 million for the Princess Grace Foundation-USA and captured a combined media audience in excess of 140 million.
In 2008, Ambassador Maccario Doyle was appointed by Prince Albert to be vice president of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation-USA and has since spearheaded many local fundraising and awareness events (with, among others, Travel + Leisure magazine, Chicago’s Field Museum, Disney and Tesla), as well as the creation of Monaco’s Environmental Stewardship Gallery, a customized installation depicting the principality’s conservation efforts.
Ambassador Maccario Doyle also supports various humanitarian causes and in 1998 was awarded a gold medal from ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for her services toward its international programs.
In 1996, Prince Rainier presented her with a “Chevalier de l’Ordre de Saint-Charles” distinction in recognition of services to the Principality of Monaco and the Princely Family.
