New National Intelligence Council Chairman Arrives

Dr. Gregory F. Treverton joined the Office of the Director of National Intelligence as the National Intelligence Council chairman this week following the June 16 announcement of his selection by Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper.  

As chairman of the NIC and advisor to the DNI, Treverton will be responsible for overseeing the analysis and production of coordinated Intelligence Community analyses, including National Intelligence Estimates.

“Greg’s rare combination of world class analytic skills, broad substantive expertise, passion for the intelligence profession and deep understanding of the NIC’s unique role and mission makes him the right person for this position at exactly the right time,” said Clapper.
