Serco Executive Maureen Baginski Receives FBI Intelligence Analysts Association Award
Reston, VA (PRWEB) May 02, 2011
Serco Inc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services to the federal government, is proud to announce that Maureen Baginski, Vice President of Serco’s Intelligence Services, received the FBI Intelligence Analysts Association (IAA) Award. The first annual event and ceremony was held on April 12 in Washington, DC.
Ms. Baginski was recognized for her work from 2003 to 2005, when she served as the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director for Intelligence. In that position, she was responsible for establishing and managing the FBI’s first-ever intelligence program. She adapted FBI intelligence capabilities with information technologies to create an intelligence-sharing operation that could identify threats before they became attacks.
During the awards ceremony, James Mackey, a former FBI supervisory intelligence analyst, had these words to say about Ms. Baginski, “Ladies and gentlemen, this person, Maureen Baginski immediately established credibility through hard work the old fashioned way. She became one of the Director’s tugboats, and again, through hard work…she established the FBI directorate for domestic intelligence and brought about fundamental change in the FBI, not only for you, but for the American people.”
Prior to her role with the FBI, Ms. Baginski served at the National Security Agency (NSA) for 23 years, 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.
“We are truly proud of Maureen and this great honor she received. She has brought to Serco the same can-do attitude she exuded while working for the FBI and she continues to lead her team here at Serco with pride and respect,” said Ed Casey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Serco.
Ms. Baginski is also 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. She 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.
