At 66 years old, David Doyle is enjoying his second, or perhaps, his third career.
After some 40 plus years in France, David is still professionally active as a diplomat, living near Paris, with his Belgian-born wife, Pascale.
How he got to being assigned to, and retained in, Paris, is a long story!
David started his career at CTT in Dublin back in November 1974, straight out of university and went in to serve at the CTT office in Paris mid-1975 to end 1977. “I worked with David Strahan, Bernard Rogan and the late Damon Pollard, at an exciting time in CTT’s quest to diversify trade promotion efforts away from one over-reliant export market”.
His career after CTT Paris took David on a journey over the ensuing 37 years as a diplomat to a number of International Organisations, spanning the OECD, the European Parliament and, more recently, UNESCO.
He currently serves as the Ambassador and Permanent Delegate of the Caribbean state of St. Christopher (St. Kitts) & Nevis to UNESCO – a Commonwealth small island developing state, independent since 1983.
