CIA Director Gina Haspel welcomed three senior officers to the Agency’s leadership team including Greek-American Andrew (Andy) Makridis who was appointed Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Makridis succeeds Brian Bulatao, who is pending Senate confirmation to be Under Secretary of State for Management.

“Andy brings a wealth of expertise from his 32-year CIA career and has a deep understanding of how the Agency works. He is the ultimate team player,” Director Haspel said.

He will lead the team of operations officers who focus on clandestinely spotting, assessing, developing, recruiting, and handling non-US citizens with access to foreign intelligence vital to US foreign policy and national security decision makers.

Vaughn Bishop was appointed Deputy Director and Sonya Holt Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer (CDIO).
