Paul Cellucci
Ambassador, Canada

Paul Cellucci was sworn in as Ambassador to Canada on April 10, 2001.

Prior to his appointment, Ambassador Cellucci served as Governor of Massachusetts.  He served as Governor since July 1997, when former Governor William Weld resigned the post; he had previously been Lieutenant Governor from 1990-97.

Ambassador Cellucci's career in government began in 1970 when he was elected to the Hudson Charter Commission. One year later, he won a seat on the Hudson Board of Selectmen and he served on that panel until 1977. In 1976, he was elected to the first of four terms in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. In 1984, Ambassador Cellucci was elected to the Massachusetts Senate from the Middlesex and Worcester District, and during his third Senate term became the Assistant Republican Leader.

Ambassador Cellucci's private sector experience includes almost 30 years of work with his family's auto dealership, and 17 years in the private practice of law, eventually as partner in the Hudson law firm of Kittredge, Cellucci and Moreira, P.C.

Ambassador Cellucci received his law degree from Boston College Law School in 1973. In 1970, he graduated from the Boston College School of Management where he served in the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC). He served in the Army Reserves from 1970 until 1978, when he was honorably discharged with the rank of Captain.
