Wright-Patterson AIR FORCE BASE -- Col. Jeffrey Kronewitter passed the guidon of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center’s Geospatial and Signatures Intelligence Group to Col. Mary-Kathryn Haddad as part of a June 28, change of command ceremony held at NASIC.

Col. Parker H. Wright, National Air and Space Intelligence Center commander, officiated the ceremony in front of a crowd of more than 100 NASIC employees gathered in the center’s eastern entrance.

“When Lt. Gen. Jamieson asked for my input in hiring our next class of O-6 leaders, Col. Haddad was at the top of my list,” Wright said. “I knew her reputation as a no-nonsense, aggressive, and personable leader who delivers results on target, on time, every time. I saw how she helped Lt. Gen. Jamieson craft the Flight Plan and I knew she had the tenacity, vision, and attitude to excel on our leadership team.”

Prior to taking command, Col. Haddad served as the Deputy Director, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, Readiness and Talent Management, HAF/A2, Headquarters Air Force, Pentagon Washington D.C.

“My family and I are over the moon to be a part of the NASIC team,” said Col. Haddad. “NASIC’s reputation precedes itself, I never imagined that I would have the opportunity to work in an organization with the number of world class people and talent that NASIC has. Its unique mission in supporting acquisition, warfighter and policymaker customers makes the organization like no other.”

Regarding the outgoing GS commander, Col Kronewitter will head off to Osan, Korea to become the Director of Intelligence at 7AF/A2. He’ll be responsible for planning and directing air component operations in the Republic of Korea and Northwestern Pacific regions.

“Not only did the mission reach new heights under Jeff’s leadership, but GS personnel also thrived. He guided incredible work that earned the team a vast number of awards, through multiple National awards,” said Wright. “You have certainly left your mark on GS and NASIC, you should be very proud of this command tour, we have all benefited greatly from your leadership and I will personally miss seeing you around here”

GS is responsible for creating Geospatial and Signatures Intelligence and innovate advanced capabilities to characterize objects, activates, and events to deliver decision advantage for the Air Force and the Nation.
