The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has named a long-time intelligence executive as its eighth deputy director.
Stacey Dixon joins from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, where she served as director. Prior to that role, she was a deputy director at NGA. Her NGA career began in 2010 as the chief of congressional affairs. She then became deputy director of NGA’s Office of Corporate Communications, director of the NGA’s Information Integration Office and later deputy director of NGA’s research and development directorate.
“Dr. Dixon is a proven leader who has a deep understanding of NGA and the entire intelligence community, its current challenges and the bright opportunities that lie ahead,” said NGA Director Vice Adm. Robert Sharp in an announcement. “She has earned a stellar reputation for synthesizing complex national security problems, developing solutions, boldly leading enterprise operations and caring for people.”
