Justin Poole, formerly director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency‘s source operations and management directorate, has been appointed to serve as NGA’s seventh deputy director.
He started his federal career with the Defense Mapping Agency — an NGA predecessor organization — in 1991 and has since held business management, customer service, operations and strategic oversight responsibilities.
NGA Director Robert Cardillo, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2017, said Poole’s background will help the agency keep pace with the evolving GEOINT landscape.
Poole previously served as director of the Xperience Directorate; deputy program manager at the National System of Geospatial Intelligence and deputy director for mission management at the National Counterterrorism Center.
He also worked at the National Reconnaissance Office as associate deputy director for NRO’s imagery intelligence systems acquisition directorate.
