USGIF is pleased to announce it has hired Ronda Schrenk, a 25-year geospatial intelligence professional, as its new Vice President of Programs. Schrenk has held various positions at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) since 1997, most recently on assignment to the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) as the Senior Fellow for Public-Private Partnerships.

At INSA, Schrenk was a member of the senior leadership team, managing member volunteer working group efforts and leading content development for a variety of forums bringing together experts from both in and outside of government to discuss pressing national security issues.

“Ronda’s diverse background in industry and her 20+ years at NGA make her the perfect choice for USGIF’s new VP of Programs,” said USGIF Interim CEO Steve Oswald. “Equally valuable is the experience she gained as NGA’s representative at INSA. Her personal enthusiasm for USGIF’s mission, coupled with her in-depth knowledge of the GEOINT Community, will be a huge factor in helping USGIF meet its mission going forward.”
