Susan Gordon joins CACI board of directors
On April 6, Arlington, VA-based CACI International Inc announced that it has appointed Susan “Sue” Gordon to CACI’s Board of Directors effective immediately. Gordon has served in senior leadership positions across numerous intelligence organizations and disciplines. She brings CACI’s board more than 30 years of leadership experience across a broad spectrum of complex issues, most notably in the development of innovative technology solutions and transformative outcomes for the Intelligence Community (IC). Gordon’s appointment continues CACI’s commitment to a diverse board of directors who bring valuable backgrounds that align with the Company’s strategic goals. Gordon’s extensive experience in the IC will further the expertise and technology CACI provides to the IC, particularly in the areas of cyber, space, and artificial intelligence to counter threats to the United States’ national security.
Gordon was sworn in as the fifth Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence in 2017. In that capacity, Gordon was a key advisor to the President and National Security Council and provided leadership to the 17-member IC. In particular, she focused on advancing intelligence integration across the IC, expanding outreach and partnerships, and driving innovation across the Community. Gordon served as the Deputy Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) from 2015 to 2017. In this role, she provided leadership to the agency and managed the National System of Geospatial Intelligence. She drove NGA’s transformation to meet the challenges of a 21st century intelligence agency.
Prior to her assignment with the NGA, Gordon served for 27 years at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), rising to senior executive positions in each of the agency’s then four directorates: operations, analysis, science and technology, and support. In 1998, Gordon led the effort that culminated in the formation of In-Q-Tel. Ms. Gordon has been recognized for her creative executive leadership through numerous government and industry awards.
Gordon is a Rubenstein Fellow at Duke University and an industry consultant on strategy, leadership, and technology. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in zoology (biomechanics) from Duke University where she was the three-time captain of the Duke Women’s Basketball team. She and her husband, Jim, live in Northern Virginia, and have two adult children and two grandchildren.
