After many successful business ventures, he was appointed by Florida's Governor Jeb Bush to enterprise Florida’s Board of Directors, and to the Space Research and Commerce Park Planning & Amp Development Committee at the John F. Kennedy Space Center. President George W. Bush honored Ambassador Siegel in 2003 with a Presidential Appointment to the Board of Directors of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, followed by an appointment in 2006 to serve as a Representative of the United States to the United Nations.
