David Fischer who took office in Rabat in January 2020 was the first American ambassador to visit the occupied Sahrawi city of Dakhla, a visit which followed the conclusion of the barter agreement, resulting in the normalization of diplomatic relations between Morocco and the Zionist entity in return for the recognition by the outgoing American President, Donald Trump, of Morocco’s alleged sovereignty over Western Sahara.
Prior to his appointment as US Ambassador to Rabat, Fischer was CEO of Suburban Collection Holdings, a private conglomerate made up of one of the largest car dealership groups in the United States.
David Fischer was, among others, a member of the Judicial Tenure Commission for the State of Michigan, chairman of the Board of Trustees of Oakland University and a member of the Board of Administration of the Southeast Michigan Community Foundation.
