It is my great pleasure to introduce to you CENSA’s newest board member, Mr. Kevin Ryan. Kevin is a U.S. Army Intelligence Officer, who has held senior intelligence positions at the company, battalion, brigade, and division levels. Kevin has served in both conventional and special operations units -- deploying multiple times to Iraq and Afghanistan. Most recently he served as a Defense Congressional Fellow in the US Senate, and as the Intelligence Portfolio manager for the Army's Office of the Chief Legislative Liaison.
Kevin joins the board after being a CENSA member for the last three years, having led several CENSA working groups - including one that published a CENSA paper on improving artificial intelligence expertise in the national security workforce. Kevin will be assuming the responsibilities of Director of Finance for CENSA. Kevin replaces Board Member Christopher McGuire, who is taking a temporary leave of absence while serving in a new position in the U.S. government. We thank Chris for his contributions and leadership on the board for the last three years and wish him the best of luck in his new responsibilites.
Finally, I’d like to wish you a wonderful holiday season and happy new year - we look forward to seeing you all at a CENSA event (hopefully in person) in 2022.
William J. Denn
Chairman of the Board of Directors
Council for Emerging National Security Affairs
