U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Linda Urrutia-Varhall — former assistant deputy chief of staff for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in the Pentagon — has been assigned to a new role as director of operations for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

The 32-year Air Force veteran is a former director of intelligence of the U.S. Southern Command and senior executive officer to National Intelligence Director James Clapper, NGA said Thursday.

Urrutia-Varhall also acted as Clapper’s senior military assistant during his tenure as defense undersecretary for intelligence.

“I have worked with [Urrutia-Varhall] before and know she brings remarkable skill and experience to this important position,” NGA Director Robert Cardillo said.

“She knows the intelligence community and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations from the flight line to the Pentagon,” he stated.

Her career includes service in command and staff positions in South Korea and Europe.
