Current Position: Ambassador

A career member of the Senior Foreign Service, William H. Moser was selected by President Barack Obama to be the United States’ next ambassador to Moldova on May 5, 2011, and he was confirmed by the Senate on August 2.

Born and raised in North Carolina, Moser was educated at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree.
He joined Foreign Service in 1984.
Moser’s domestic and overseas assignments have included: general services officer at Embassy Bamako in Mali; staff assistant and consular officer in Bonn, Germany; disbursing/financial management officer at the U.S. embassy in Cairo, Egypt; administrative officer Paramaribo, Suriname; political military officer in the State Department’s Office of Regional Support and Security Assistance; energy attaché/economic officer and management officer in Kazakhstan; post management officer in the Bureau of Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs in Washington, DC; management counselor at the American embassy in Kiev, Ukraine; and director of global support services and innovation in the State Department.
Prior to his posting in Moldova, Moser served as deputy assistant secretary for logistics management at the State Department. In this role he was put in the uncomfortable position of defending before the House of Representatives the fact that the State Department in 2007 was paying the private security firm Blackwater $400,000 each for guards in Iraq, as well as allegations of misconduct by private security personnel in Afghanistan.
Moser and his wife, Marie, have two sons and one daughter.
