On October 28, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper announced the appointment of Amy McAuliffe as the new National Intelligence Council chair.
I am pleased to announce that I have selected Amy McAuliffe to serve as the next chair of the National Intelligence Council (NIC).
Amy is a career CIA officer with more than 20 years of leadership and management of high performing analytic production organizations, including CIA’s Office of Middle East and North African Analysis and ODNI’s President’s Daily Brief Staff. Amy holds degrees from the University of Notre Dame, American University and the Marine Corps University.
The IC will continue to rely heavily on Amy and the entire National Intelligence Council to provide the President, senior policy makers and military commanders with the timely, relevant and accurate intelligence necessary to shape critical national security decisions.
I would also like to thank Dr. Gregory Treverton for his service to the IC and the nation during his tenure at the helm of the NIC these past two-and-a-half years. Greg will be returning to academia where he will continue to pursue his passion for international relations and matters relating to the IC.
The NIC and the nation are indeed fortunate to have such exceptional leaders as Amy and Greg who are willing to serve at this critical period in America’s history.
James R. Clapper, Director of National Intelligence
