Analytical Graphics Inc. (AGI) is honored to announce the addition of Mr. Robert Cardillo, founder and President of The Cardillo Group, LLC, to its board of directors.  


“Robert is a pillar of the intelligence community, and a champion for commercial innovation.” says Paul Graziani, chief executive officer and cofounder at AGI. “There is a natural resonance with Robert, our mission, and our people. We are thrilled to have him as a part of the AGI family and we look forward to his expertise and valuable end-user experience.”  


With the appointment of Mr. Cardillo, AGI’s board consists of five members, including: Paul L. Graziani, Scott A. Reynolds, Gen. Howell M. Estes, III (USAF, Ret.), and Jeffrey K. Harris. 


“I have been impressed with Paul’s leadership and vision as I benefitted from AGI’s services in a number of senior U.S. Intelligence Community leadership positions,” notes Mr. Cardillo. “To now get a chance to help Paul and the board take AGI to the next level is professionally exciting and personally rewarding.” 


After dedicating 35 years to public service in the U.S. Intelligence Community, Mr. Cardillo retired in February 2019 as Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
