“We are honored to add Ambassador Ned L.

Ambassador Siegel’s business success speaks for itself and his reputation throughout commercial and government circles is second-to-none. We are confident that Ambassador Siegel’s broad relationships and expertise will be invaluable to MediXall and our customers, as we continue to take our business to the next level and continue to tell the MediXall story more widely.”
In 1997, Ambassador Siegel founded The Siegel Group, Inc., an international business management advisory firm, specializing in real estate, energy, utilities, infrastructure, financial services, oil & gas, and technology with its primary focus on the United States, Israel, the Caribbean, and Latin America markets. The firm has an unprecedented track record of acquiring and developing successful master plan residential communities, corporate office developments, industrial parks, and retail centers.
After demonstrating his success in the private sector, Ambassador Siegel was appointed by Florida Governor Jeb Bush to serve as a Member of the Board of Directors of Enterprise Florida, Inc. (EFI), the state's primary organization promoting statewide economic development through its public-private partnership. He served in this role for several years before being appointed by President George W. Bush to serve as a Member of the Board of Directors of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a development agency of the U.S Government to help U.S. businesses invest overseas.

Subsequently, Ambassador Siegel was again honored by President Bush and appointed to serve with Ambassador John R. Bolton at the United Nations in New York as Senior Advisor to the U.S. Mission and Representative of the United States to the 61st Session of the United Nations General Assembly.
In October 2007, President George W. Bush once more sought out the service of Ambassador Siegel, appointing him to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to the Commonwealth of The Bahamas where Ned served as the Chief of Mission and was responsible for all operations of the U.S. Embassy Nassau. His responsibilities included oversight and management of over 200 U.S. Department of State employees located in five separate locations throughout the Bahamas, representing seven different government agencies.
