Ms Nancy J Powell, a career diplomat, who has earlier held diplomatic positions in India and also served as the American envoy to Pakistan, has been named the next US Ambassador to New Delhi.
Sixty-four-year-old Ms Powell, nominated by President Barack Obama for the coveted post, would be the first woman US Ambassador to India and replace Mr Timothy J Roemer, who resigned from his post in April 2011 following a two-year stint, if her appointment is confirmed by the Senate. Mr Peter Burleigh is currently serving as the Charge d'affaires of the US Embassy in India.
