Maguire Nomination to be Director of National Counterterrorism Center Is ‘Welcome,’ Says Coats

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said he is “pleased” that President Trump announced his intent to nominate retired Vice Adm. Joseph Maguire to be the next director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Maguire, who has served as president and chief executive officer of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation since September 2013, was nominated Friday.

“Joe is an experienced national security expert whose long and distinguished service to our nation in the special operations warfare community will be immensely valuable as he takes on some of our nation’s most challenging counterterrorism issues in a rapidly shifting international security landscape,” Coats said in a statement.

“His return to NCTC, where he previously served with great distinction as the deputy director for strategic operational planning and as a member of the National Security Council’s Counterterrorism Security Group, would be a welcome addition to the CT community,” the DNI added.

A native of New York City, Maguire was awarded a B.S. from Manhattan College and a MSTI from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif. He also was a National Security Fellow at Harvard University. He and his wife Kathy currently reside in Tampa, Fla.
