WASHINGTON, D.C. – Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines today issued the following statement:


“I am delighted to welcome Timothy Barrett as Assistant Director of National Intelligence for Strategic Communications. Tim brings a wealth of experience — including hard-earned credibility with the press — and is held in high esteem across the Intelligence Community. He shares my conviction that public trust is essential to our vital mission, and I am excited to have him on my leadership team.


“Tim carved out a niche as a communications adviser and intelligence officer. Most recently, he served as CIA Press Secretary for the last three years, navigating critically sensitive situations and advancing a variety of communications efforts. He previously held management positions in public affairs for ODNI and NCTC. Moreover, Tim understands the intelligence cycle, having served as a Presidential Daily Briefer, and I will lean on him to help us showcase the great work that takes place each day across the Intelligence Community — and to ensure the public we serve understands our mission, authorities, and values.”
