Carmen just joined Deloitte in January 2011 after retiring from almost 32 years at the Central Intelligence Agency in 2010. She is now looking to contribute to the causes she believes in, among them rigor in analytics, navigating the emergence of new global norms in the 21st century, developing the transparent and collaborative future culture of work, and diversity. Her last assignment at CIA was as Director of the Center for the Study of Intelligence (CSI), from January 2007-December 2009. As the CSI Director she developed and managed CIA’s first Agency-wide Lessons Learned Program. Her record as a visionary analytic thinker and a dedicated, caring leader made her known--inside CIA and beyond--as an articulate, passionate voice for excellence in intelligence. Today you can discover what she’s thinking by following her on Twitter as “milouness” or by reading her blog on recoveringfed.com.
From 2005 through 2007 she was the Deputy Director for Intelligence, a member of the executive team that led the CIA’s analytic directorate. In her CIA career, Carmen held positions of increasing responsibility to include Chief of the Strategic Assessments Group in the Office of Transnational Issues, Directorate of Intelligence. She has led analysts working on Southern Africa and Central America, and helped to design the Global Coverage Program and to innovate new production methods to support policymakers. In the early 1990s, she served overseas in Western Europe.
Carmen graduated a long time ago from Catholic University, Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa, with a BA in Comparative Government. She also pursued graduate studies at Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service, but her coursework was interrupted by the offer of full-time employment at the Agency. She is a member of the Board of Directors of the IN Series, a DC-based non-profit theater group.
Carmen was born in Caguas, Puerto Rico on 8 October 1954. As an Army dependent, she also lived in Oklahoma, Georgia, Alaska, North Carolina, Germany and Texas. In addition to living in the northern Virginia suburbs, she also spends considerable time clearing cedar from a Hill Country home north of San Antonio.
