Anthony Hale becomes Army deputy chief of staff for intelligence

On January 18, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines issued the following statement welcoming Lt. Gen. Anthony Hale as Army deputy chief of staff for intelligence and thanking Lt. Gen. Laura Potter.

“It is my great honor to welcome Lieutenant General Anthony ‘Tony’ R. Hale as the U.S. Army’s Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence (G-2). As a career intelligence officer with 34 years of service, Tony is an extraordinary leader who has developed the Army intelligence enterprise and profession over a lifetime of service, most recently through his leadership as the Commanding General and Commandant of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence at Fort Huachuca. I look forward to working with him in his new role.”

“I would also like to congratulate Lieutenant General Laura A. Potter on her new assignment and thank her for her partnership and leadership of the Army intelligence enterprise over the past few years during this exceptionally dynamic period. Laura is an exceptional leader who makes everyone around her better, and what she has done for our community — both in evolving the organization she led but also as a member of the Intelligence Community’s Executive Committee (EXCOM) — in the last several years is truly remarkable.”

“Laura’s extraordinary command of the details of our profession and strategic vision, combined with her selfless approach to command and care for those around her, makes her one of a kind. She balanced operations and crisis in this complex environment all while building a culture of continuous improvement and modernization to address emerging demands. As a true visionary and steward of the Army intelligence enterprise, her legacy lives on with us, and I only look forward to the next phase of her continued leadership and contributions to our Community as the Director of the Army Staff.”
