President Donald Trump has selected Joseph Maguire, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, to serve as acting director of national intelligence starting Aug. 15, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

Trump announced Maguire’s appointment in a tweet posted Thursday.

Maguire took the helm of NCTC in December after he received Senate confirmation. He previously served as president and CEO of the nonprofit organization Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) and as a national security fellow at Harvard University.

He spent 36 years in the U.S. Navy and retired in 2010 as a vice admiral. His naval career included time as head of Naval Special Warfare Command.
