Susan C. Schwab (born March 23, 1955) is currently United States Trade Representative. In April, 2006, she was nominated to replace Rob Portman as United States Trade Representative. Upon Portman's confirmation as director of the Office of Management and Budget, she became Acting Trade Representative, and served in that position until her confirmation by the United States Senate on June 8, 2006. Previously, she served as Deputy United States Trade Representative from 2005 to 2006.

Prior to becoming Deputy Trade Representative, she had served since 2003, as President and CEO of the University System of Maryland Foundation.

Earlier in her career, she served as an aide to then-U.S. Senator John Danforth, as a foreign service officer in the State Department, as a well-respected Director-General of the Foreign and Commercial Service within the U.S. Department of Commerce, and as a business advisor to Motorola.

She had put a conclusion on the United States-Canada softwood lumber dispute that lasted since 2001 by officially signing a deal along with Canadian Trade Minister David Emerson on September 12, 2006 that will give Canada 4 out of the 5.3 billion dollars that the country lost in the dispute.
