US Ambassador to Poland Georgette Mosbacher tweeted on Sunday that since she submitted her credentials to the Polish president two years ago, relations between the United States and Poland have become closer.

"Two years ago I presented my credentials to @PrezydentPL. Since then the relationship between the U.S. and Poland has become closer than ever. Together we’ve managed to achieve so much. It’s a great honor to serve as U.S. Ambassador to Poland!" she wrote in her Twitter post.

Mosbacher is the first female US ambassador to Poland. As commentators have pointed out, she is not a professional diplomat, however, her strength lies in her connections to influential circles within the Republican Party and her many-year acquaintance with President of the United States Donald Trump.

Mosbacher is a US enterpriser, since 1992 head of the Georgette Mosbacher Enterprises consultancy. From 2001 to 2005 she was CEO of the New York-based Borghese Inc. cosmetics manufacturer. Mosbacher is also known for her charity work and political involvement. She co-chaired the Financial Commission of the US Republic Party's National Committee and was the first woman to chair the party's Governors' Association. In 2016, US President Barack Obama appointed her to the US Public Diplomacy Advisory Council.

The US ambassador to Warsaw is a member of the influential think tank Atlantic Council and the Foreign Policy Association.

An active philanthropist, in 1995, she founded the Children Advocacy Centre of Manhattan, which assists abused children and their families, and has served on the boards of numerous charities supporting veterans and their families.
