Margaret DeBardeleben Tutwiler (born December 28, 1950 in Birmingham, Alabama) is a former Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs at the US State Department, serving from December 16, 2003 to June 30, 2004. She was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on December 9, 2003 to replace outgoing Under Secretary Charlotte Beers. Tutwiler was given the task of leading "the government's public-relations drive to build a favorable impression abroad." She had previously been Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs from 1989 to 1992.

Tutwiler, the daughter of Temple Tutwiler II, and Margaret DeBardeleben Tutwiler,[1] was Ambassador to Morocco from March 2001 until 2003. In July 2004, she began directing communications for NYSE Euronext. Her boss at the NYSE, John Thain, later brought her on board as head of communications at Merrill Lynch in December 2007 and then at CIT Group in August 2010.[2]

Tutwiler is a member of the board of directors of the International Republican Institute.[3]
