Dr. Keith E. Littlefield

Vice President, Intelligence Solutions Group
Engility

Littlefield has spent the bulk of his career managing large, complex acquisition IT programs. He joined Engility in 2013 after retiring from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), where he most recently served as the agency’s chief information officer. In that role, Littlefield was responsible for planning, managing and protecting all GEOINT information technology.

Previously, he served as the Director of National Intelligence senior acquisition executive with oversight on the Intelligence Community’s entire IT portfolio of major systems acquisitions and facilities worldwide.

During the course of his 30-year government career, Littlefield has garnered numerous awards, including the Director of National Intelligence Superior Service Medal, Presidential Rank Award of Distinguished Executive, and NGA Distinguished Civilian Service Award.

Littlefield earned a Ph.D. in advanced geographic information systems from the University of Maryland at College Park; an M.A. in urban and environmental planning as a Thomas Jefferson Fellow at the University of Virginia; and a B.A. in economics and geography at Mary Washington College.
