Paul Graver, CACI’s vice president and client executive for the intelligence community, has been named chairman of the WashingtonExec Intelligence Council for 2019-2020.
“This promises to be an exciting year for WashingtonExec’s Intel Council,” Graver said. “Challenging worldwide geopolitical events and policymakers demand more of the intelligence community. The IC is rapidly leveraging emerging technologies like cloud computing, artificial intelligence/machine learning-assisted analysis and software defined infrastructures to respond to huge volumes of intelligence-related data.”
Graver will focus on new business pursuits that meet customer priorities as well as developing existing programs. The group plans to host programs on emerging intelligence technologies, bringing fresh topics to the 5-year council of 30 executives.
“Our speakers series will focus on key government leaders who can share insights and information, which will guide our members mission-support and business strategies,” Graver said. “Staying informed is a challenge the Intel Council’s speakers series will help its members address.”
Graver brings to the role over 30 years of experience in national security. Prior to CACI, he served in numerous key senior executive leadership roles at the CIA, including chief operating officer of the agency’s Office of Global Infrastructure. Graver received the 2016 Presidential Meritorious Rank Award.
Graver has a bachelor’s degree in criminology from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania as well as numerous CIA awards and medals.
