Vice Adm. Robert Sharp Assumes NGA Director Post; Robert Cardillo Quoted

U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Robert Sharp, formerly commander of the Office of Naval Intelligence and a 2019 Wash100 winner, formally assumed duties as National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency director at a ceremony held Thursday in Springfield, Va.

He succeeds Robert Cardillo, fellow four-time Wash100 award winner who held the position over the past four years, NGA said Thursday.

Sharp has concurrently led the ONI and the National Maritime Intelligence-Integration Office since April 2016.

“As I hand the baton to my successor today, I do so knowing this agency has made great strides in elevating deeper insight and improving operational agility to protect our nation’s security,” Cardillo said during the hand over ceremony.
