On October 1, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe issued the following statement:

“On behalf of ODNI and the Intelligence Community, I welcome Army Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier as the 22nd Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Lt. Gen. Berrier brings a distinguished military background and decades of intelligence experience to the IC. With a focus on delivering intelligence on foreign militaries, DIA plays a crucial role in advancing U.S. theater and national security missions. DIA will continue to excel under Lt. Gen. Berrier’s leadership, and I look forward to working closely with him.

“I also express my deepest gratitude to retiring Director Army Lt. Gen. Robert P. Ashley Jr. He served our nation with honor, bravery and distinction for nearly 40 years, and I wish him the very best in his well-deserved retirement.”

Ratcliffe welcomed Berrier and congratulated Ashley during a change of command ceremony at DIA headquarters October 1.
