Executive Vice President for Security and Intelligence Integration
Mr. Calland supports CACI's continually expanding business within well funded markets in the Intelligence Community and the growing market for information sharing at the nexus of intelligence, defense and law enforcement capabilities that is so critical to our nation's defense.
Mr. Calland most recently served as Deputy Director for Strategic Operational Planning at the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). Prior to that he was Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and served as Commander of Special Operations Central within the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM).
A highly decorated veteran, Mr. Calland brings battlefield leadership and command experience at all levels. His 33-year Navy career included service as a platoon commander with the Navy's Sea, Air and Land (SEAL) special operations forces through command of the Navy Special Warfare Development Group from 1997 to 1999.
In 2000 Mr. Calland assumed command of CENTCOM's Special Operations Command. Following the September 11 terrorist attacks he transitioned his headquarters into a forward deployed Joint Forces Special Operations Component Command, directing more than 3000 U.S. and Coalition Special Operations Forces in Operation Enduring Freedom. In this role Mr. Calland was the first U.S. military flag officer in Afghanistan.
After serving as Commander of the Naval Special Warfare Command from 2002 until 2004 Mr. Calland was assigned as the CIA's Associate Director of Central Intelligence for Military Support and was subsequently appointed the CIA's Deputy Director (the Agency's second highest position) in 2005. In 2006 Mr. Calland was assigned to NCTC, the federal government's primary organization for integrating and analyzing intelligence on terrorism and conducting strategic operational planning across multiple agencies and organizations. At the CIA and at NCTC Mr. Calland worked on the most difficult national security issues at the highest levels in our government.
