I am very pleased that the President has nominated Matt Olsen to be the next Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). Matt’s keen understanding of counterterrorism issues, proven leadership ability and tireless commitment to national security make him an excellent choice to be the next Director of NCTC. 

Matt has been a leader in the federal government for more than two decades. His experiences at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice, and most recently as the General Counsel of the National Security Agency, will be immensely valuable as he takes on some of our nation’s most challenging national security issues.

I congratulate Matt and his family on his nomination to lead NCTC. Following Senate consideration, I look forward to the opportunity to work together.
