Leaving the world of spies, James Pavitt has left the Central Intelligence Agency where he served as Deputy Director of Operations and joined the Board of Directors of CACI. Dr. J.P. London, Chairman of the Board at CACI, said of Mr. Pavitt, “We’re honored and privileged to have James Pavitt on our Board of Directors. He has served our country with excellence and made outstanding contributions to our nation’s capabilities in countering global terrorism. His 30 years of intelligence experience will be critical to our Board as we guide CACI’s ongoing growth as a premier provider of distinctive intelligence offerings and innovative professional services and information technology solutions.” Indeed, Mr. Pavitt’s 30 years of service at the C.I.A. will help guide CACI’s strategy in the defense, counterterrorism, and financial risk arenas.
Pavitt’s time at the intelligence agency could serve as a character sketch in a Tom Clancy novel. Being the Deputy Director of Operations, he oversaw the covert agents around the globe within the Clandestine Service and the massive, billion dollar budget needed in the collection of secret information. Mr. Pavitt also was the head of the Counterproliferation Division and Senior Intelligence Advisor on the N.S.C. (National Security Council) under the first President Bush.
