White House Picks Former NGA Official for State Dept. Intelligence Post

The White House has selected a former National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) official for a new role as assistant secretary of State for the Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR).

Ellen McCarthy, former chief operating officer of NGA, managed business activities and served as an adviser to the agency’s director on matters such as strategic planning and corporate governance, the Federal Times reported.

McCarthy is also a member of the National Security Institute’s board of directors, and she previously served as president of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, director of Human Capital Management Office and acting director of security for the undersecretary of Defense for intelligence before moving to NGA.

“Ellen brings a unique skillset to this nomination, having served on the leadership team that reshaped NGA from the inside,” National Security Institute founder Jamil Jaffer said in a news release.

INR, a bureau within the Department of State, analyzes various intelligence leads and supports intelligence activities related to U.S. foreign policy and national security.
