He served as US Ambassador to the Kingdom of Swaziland during the administration of President George W. Bush. Lucke has lived and worked in eleven countries during his foreign service career: Mali, Senegal, Costa Rica, Tunisia, Bolivia, Jordan, Kuwait, Haiti, Brazil, Iraq and Swaziland. In 2010, he led the initial US response to the Haiti earthquake. Ambassador Lucke is the author of “Waiting for Rain: Life & Development in Mali, W. Africa” (1999) and is fluent in both French and Spanish. His overseas development work has included the areas of disaster response, economic policy reform, microfinance, HIV/AIDS programs, infrastructure development, governance, food aid and private sector development.
