The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency on Thursday named Stacey Dixon its eighth deputy director.
“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,” Vice Adm. Robert Sharp, director of NGA, said in the announcement. “She has earned a stellar reputation for synthesizing complex national security problems, developing solutions, boldly leading enterprise operations and caring for people.”
Dixon, previously the director of the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, has been with NGA since 2010 — first as the chief of congressional affairs and in various capacities since.
She has also served as deputy director of the Office of Corporate Communications, director of the Information Integration Office, and deputy director of the research and development directorate. Dixon’s 2016 IARPA assignment was joint duty as deputy director.
