Girard-diCarlo to Get Ambassador Appointment

The White House announced on its personnel page that the president intends to nominate Blank Rome Chairman David. F. Girard-diCarlo as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to the Republic of Austria.

Girard-diCarlo has been a major donor and fundraiser for President George W. Bush and had spent several years living in Washington, D.C.

After spending more than 20 years serving as either managing partner or chairman of Blank Rome, Girard-diCarlo said last year that he would resign as chairman effective Jan. 1, 2009.

Once his nomination is in place, it would have to go through the senate confirmation process.

The firm couldn’t offer much comment on the nomination at this point, but managing partner and Chief Executive Officer Carl M. Buchholz said in a statement “David has been an important leader for our firm, and we are thrilled that he has received this nomination from the president.”
