Maureen A. Baginski -- Executive Assistant Director, Office of Intelligence

On April 3, 2003, Director Mueller appointed Ms. Baginski Executive Assistant Director of FBI Intelligence, a position confirmed by Congress in July 2003. Prior to joining the FBI, Ms. Baginski led the National Security Agency's Signals Intelligence Directorate--the Nation's high technology cryptologic organization. The Signals Intelligence Directorate manages, on behalf of the Director of NSA, the acquisition, production, and dissemination of foreign signals intelligence for customers ranging from policymakers to warfighters. As head of this organization, Ms. Baginski managed a complex, geographically dispersed extended enterprise engaged in distributed information production. Ms. Baginski established the SIGINT Directorate from what were once two separate organizations--one responsible for technology development and one responsible for information production. Ms. Baginski and her team led a successful transformation of processes, organizations, and technology to meet the challenges of 21st Century signals intelligence.

Ms. Baginski began her NSA career in 1979 as a Russian language instructor. During her time there, she held a variety of positions, including lead analyst for the former Soviet Union; Executive Assistant to the Director of NSA; Chief of Operations Policy; Assistant Deputy Director for Technology and Systems; and Chief, Office of the Director. Ms. Baginski holds a Master of Arts Degree in Slavic Languages and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Russian and Spanish from the State University of New York (SUNY), Albany, NY. She enjoys gardening, kayaking, and is an avid football fan.
