Jean-Paul Proust (3 March 1940 – 7/8 April 2010) was the Minister of State of Monaco. He held that position from 1 June 2005 (assuming this role one month later than scheduled because of Prince Rainier III's death) until 29 March 2010, having been appointed three months earlier by the prince and the French government. Like all previous ministers of state in Monaco, Proust did not grow up or live in Monaco.
He has been a long-time member of the French civil service. His most prominent positions previous to his appointment in Monaco included serving as Prefect of Guadeloupe from November 1989 to July 1991 and as the chief of police of Paris from 2001 to 6 December 2004.
Being Minister of State, a post equivalent to Prime Minister, he also had the honor of administering Prince Albert II his oath of office as Sovereign Prince of Monaco.
Proust died overnight on 7/8 April 2010.
