L. Roger Mason, Jr., Ph.D. Joins Noblis as Senior Vice President of National Security and Intelligence

Dr. Mason returns to Noblis after five years of service in the Intelligence Community as the first Assistant Director of National Intelligence for Systems and Resource Analyses

Dr. Roger Mason, former Assistant Director of National Intelligence for Systems and Resource Analyses (ADNI/SRA) for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), returned to Noblis in February of this year as Senior Vice President of National Security  and Intelligence (NSI). In this role, Dr. Mason is also responsible for overseeing Noblis’ wholly owned subsidiary, Noblis ESI, LLC, an organization dedicated to supporting the Intelligence Community (IC).

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to work closely with Dr. Mason,” said Vernon Ingram, President and Chief Executive Officer, Noblis ESI. “His extensive background in the defense-intelligence field paired with our particular expertise can mean nothing but great things for our business and our clients.”

Dr. Mason served as the ODNI’s principal for key decisions regarding national intelligence capabilities, mission requirements, resources, and strategic priorities. In recognition of his service, Dr. Mason was awarded the National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal—the IC’s highest award.

Prior to government service, Dr. Mason served in a number of senior executive leadership positions in the defense-intelligence field. He is a nationally recognized expert in intelligence capabilities, weapons of mass destruction (WMD) technology, operations research, systems integration, and change leadership. As Senior Vice President of the NSI mission area, he will be responsible for the overall direction of Noblis’ national security missions including intelligence, defense, homeland security, and law enforcement.

“I am genuinely thrilled about rejoining the Noblis team and working with both companies to lead the NSI mission,” said Dr. Mason. “Noblis ESI brings a long and impressive track record of client success. Great potential lies in the integration of Noblis’ capabilities and missions with those of Noblis ESI. Together we will tackle the hard problems that lie at the ‘interfaces’ of the intelligence domains.”
