Ambassador Thomas Matussek is a Senior Advisor at Flint Global and Deputy Chairman of the International Business Council (Berlin), after having served as German Ambassador to the United Kingdom, the United Nations, and India. He previously headed the public-policy representation of Deutsche Bank in Berlin and was the Managing Director of the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, the International Forum of Deutsche Bank. Early in his career, he served as Special Assistant for Europe to Federal Chancellor Helmut Schmidt. He was the Director General of the German Foreign Ministry and held senior staff positions with Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher – when he was deeply involved in negotiations on German unification – and with Foreign Minister Klaus Kinkel, when he worked toward a solution to the Balkan crisis. As Permanent Representative and Ambassador to the United Nations in New York, he negotiated the first four UN resolutions on the Iranian nuclear issue, which became the foundation for the so-called 3+3 Iranian nuclear deal, accomplished in 2014. Ambassador Matussek sits on a number of Boards, including the Deutsche Gesellschaft für die Vereinten Nationen (United Nations Association of Germany); Institute for Strategic Dialogue in London; Internationaler Wirtschaftssenat e.V. (World Economic Council) in Berlin; and Aspen Institute Germany.
