Margot Carrington

I am excited to be involved with a firm with unique expertise in helping Foreign Service families achieve financial security.  As someone who was able to retire early after a successful diplomatic career, I want to make sure that hard-working professionals can reap the benefits of careful financial planning.

Margot joined Carrington Financial Planning as Director for Marketing and Communications after a 25-year career in the Foreign Service, which culminated with her tour as Minister-Counselor for Public Affairs, U.S. Embassy Tokyo.  She also served as Principal Officer in Fukuoka and as Cultural Attaché in Kuala Lumpur, and held senior positions in Washington, D.C., including Director of the Foreign Press Centers.  She was the 2010-2011 Una Chapman Cox Sabbatical Fellow and served that same year as the State Department’s International Women’s Forum Leadership Foundation Fellow.  Margot has been recognized with numerous awards for leadership and mentorship, including three Superior Honor Awards and the 2018 Lois Roth Award for Cultural Diplomacy.
