Trump Picks Navy Vet Joseph Maguire to Lead National Counterterrorism Center

Joseph Maguire

President Donald Trump intends to nominate Joseph Maguire, president and CEO of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, to serve as director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

The White House said Friday Maguire assumed his current role in September 2013 after three years serving as a member of SOWF’s board of directors.

He previously worked as deputy director for strategic operational planning at NCC and served on National Security Council’s Counterterrorism Security Group in his last government assignment.

NCC operates under the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and supports national counterterrorism efforts by integrating domestic and foreign data, analyzing terrorist activity and sharing information with partner organizations.

Maguire spent 36 years at the U.S. Navy and retired from military with the rank of vice admiral in 2010.

He previously held a vice president role at Booz Allen Hamilton before he was appointed to the SOWF leadership post.
