Bradford Karony, a retired CIA officer, has joined LMI as director of national security operations.
He will be responsible for the company’s line of service offerings such as intelligence training; testing and assessment of national security-specific equipment, process protection and machinery; and signals intelligence, human and imagery support, LMI said Wednesday.
Karony “is uniquely qualified to ensure we are developing capabilities that anticipate and address client needs in intelligence collection and processing, tradecraft training, and analysis,” said John Selman, vice president for national security at LMI.
Prior to LMI, Karony previously served as a manager for CIA’s directorate of operations and a mentor at the directorate’s training center.
The 20-year intelligence professional served in the U.S. Marine Corps as a battalion adjutant for an East Coast infantry battalion.
