Office of the Press Secretary
PRESIDENT CLINTON NAMES RANDY W. DEITERING AS THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE PRESIDENT'S FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE ADVISORY BOARD
The President today announced his intent to appoint Randy W. Deitering as the Executive Director of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.
Mr. Randy W. Deitering, of Burke, Virginia, has served three successive Presidents as a member of the White House staff. During his more than eight-year association with the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB), Mr. Deitering has worked directly for eight successive Chairmen. He was named Acting Executive Director of the Board March 1, 1995. Until that date, he had been Deputy Executive Director of the Board since August 1990. He served as an Assistant Director of the PFIAB from April 1988 to April 1989, and again from December 1989 to April 1990. Mr. Deitering has over 23 years experience as a foreign intelligence officer, primarily with the Central Intelligence Agency. He has worked in nearly every facet of the foreign intelligence business: analysis, collection, technical operations, and executive staffing.
Mr. Deitering has a Master of Arts degree in comparative politics (Russian and Eastern Europe) from New York University.
The President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board is responsible for assessing the quality, quantity, and adequacy of intelligence collection, analysis, and estimates. In addition, the Board addresses counterintelligence and other intelligence activities. PFIAB has the authority to review, on behalf of the President, the performance of all U.S. Government agencies engaged in the collection, analysis or production of foreign intelligence, or the execution of foreign intelligence policy. This Board is privy to the most highly classified and sensitive foreign intelligence information in the U.S. Government.
