PHOENIX — Former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano was named to President Joe Biden’s intelligence advisory board, the White House announced Wednesday.

Napolitano will be part of a four-person team that provides Biden an independent source of advice on the effectiveness of which the nation’s intelligence needs are being met, according to a press release.

Biden can appoint up to 16 members to the board.

Napolitano served as Arizona’s top political official from 2003-2009, previously serving as the state’s attorney general and prior to that was a U.S. attorney for the District of Arizona.

Following her two terms as Arizona’s governor, Napolitano was the Secretary of Homeland Security until 2013 when she became the 20th president of the University of California.

Napolitano has since founded and serves as faculty director of the Center for Security in Politics at the University of California Berkeley and is also a professor of public policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy.

She currently lives in Berkeley, California, according to the release.

Joining Napolitano on the advisory board is Adm. James A. “Sandy” Winnefeld, Jr., who will serve as chair, along with America’s Frontier Fund CEO Gilman Louie and Head of Global Public Policy for Mastercard and former U.S. ambassador to India Richard Verma.
