Lora Shiao, executive director at the National Counterterrorism Center, has been appointed to lead NCTC as a whole on an acting basis, Bloomberg reported Saturday.

She will direct the center before Christopher Miller, deputy assistant secretary for special operations and combating terrorism at the  Department of Defense, receives confirmation as NCTC's leader.

President Donald Trump nominated Miller for the post last week.

Shiao holds over 20 years of intelligence community experience, having worked on various anti-terrorism efforts.

Richard Grenell, acting director of national intelligence, announces Shiao's appointment Monday, the report noted.
