Prior to this, he served as Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary and Acting Assistant Secretary for International Organization Affairs at the Department of State. Earlier in his career, he served as Political Counselor at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. Ambassador Wood received his bachelor's degree from Bucknell University and his master's degree from George Washington University.

If the Senate approves his nomination, Mr. Wood will replace Ronald Neumann, who has served as Ambassador since July 2005.
