Jeremiah Congbeh Sulunteh became ambassador of Liberia to the United States on May 2, 2012.

Since 2006, Ambassador Sulunteh has held several Cabinet positions under President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, including minister of transport and then minister of labor, transport and post and telecommunication. Following his first appointment as transport minister, Ambassador Sulunteh undertook a project to build an elementary and junior high school in his hometown of Gboimu to ensure that children would not have to walk, as he had done, three miles every morning to attend school in neighboring Gbondoi. In addition, Ambassador Sulunteh taught economic development at the Graduate School of Cuttington University, his alma mater, and public finance administration at the nation's oldest institution of higher learning, the University of Liberia. His writings include "Public Sector Deficits and Macroeconomic Performance: Adjustment, Reform and Growth, the Case of Ghana" (2000); "Sustainable African Economic Development: the Role of the IMF" (1999); "The Political Economy of African Development: A Comparative Study of Kenya and Tanzania" (1994); and "The Government Privatization Policy: A Case Study of the Liberia Electricity Corporation" (1988).

Ambassador Sulunteh holds a bachelor's of science degree in economics from Cuttington University College (now Cuttington University), a master's degree in public administration from the American University in Cairo, Egypt, and a master's of arts degree in economics from York University in Toronto, Canada.

He speaks and writes fluent Kpelle, his native tongue, and is married to Kabeh Sulunteh with three children.
