Reston, VA (Vocus) December 8, 2009
Serco Inc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services to the federal government, announced today that Maureen Baginski has been named Vice President of the intelligence business and National Security Advisor at Serco. Ms. Baginski has a distinguished background with almost three decades of service in the United States Intelligence Community.
Most recently, Ms. Baginski was President of the National Security Systems Sector for Sparta Inc. and prior to that a Director in Bearing Point’s Intelligence Sector. She also served on SI International’s Board of Directors until it was acquired by Serco in December 2009.
From 2003 to 2005, Ms. Baginski served as the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director for Intelligence where she was responsible for establishing and managing the FBI’s first-ever intelligence program. Her mission was to adapt FBI intelligence capabilities with information technologies to create an intelligence-sharing operation that could identify threats before they became attacks.
From 1979 to 2003, Ms. Baginski served at the National Security Agency (NSA), where she held a variety of positions, including Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Director, Senior Operations Officer in the National Security Operations Center; Executive Assistant to the Director of NSA/Central Security Service, Chief Officer of the Director; Assistant Deputy Director of Technology and Systems; and lead analyst for the Soviet Union. As SIGINT Director, Ms. Baginski successfully established and directed a unified program to exploit encrypted or denied information on global networks. Leading the NSA’s Signals Intelligence Directorate, the Nation’s high technology cryptology organization, she managed a complex and geographically dispersed distributed information production enterprise.
“Maureen Baginski brings to Serco a wealth of experience and demonstrated successes in the intelligence community,” said Ed Casey, Chief Executive Officer of Serco. “She has distinguished herself in a number of federal government leadership positions and is considered a visionary by transitioning the intelligence community to using information and information sharing as a weapon to prevent terrorist attacks. We are truly honored to have Maureen join the Serco team.”
Ms. Baginski is the recipient of two Presidential Rank Awards, two Director of Central Intelligence National Achievement Medals, the Director of Military Intelligence’s Leadership Award, and NSA’s Exceptional Civilian Service Award. Ms. Baginski holds BA and MA degrees in Slavic Languages and Linguistics from the University of Albany. In December 2005, she received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the University of Albany for her service to the nation.
