Matteo Martemucci to Serve as Central Security Service Deputy Chief

Gen. Paul Nakasone, chief of the Central Security Service, has named U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Select Matteo Martemucci as the new deputy chief of the combat support agency.

Martemucci is tasked with supporting the CSS head with operational control of signals intelligence missions by the service branches and the U.S. Coast Guard, the National Security Agency said Friday.

Nakasone, a 2023 Wash100 winner who also serves as the NSA director and head of the U.S. Cyber Command, said Martemucci will build upon the efforts of Maj. Gen. Douglas Coppinger, the previous CSS deputy chief.

Previously, Martemucci was director of intelligence at CYBERCOM in Fort Meade, Maryland, advising the commander and contributing to the planning and execution of full-spectrum cyber operations.

Martemucci has served in various intelligence and cyber roles within the Air Force. According to his LinkedIn profile, he was the intelligence director of the Combined Task Force under Operation Inherent Resolve in Baghdad.

His educational background includes a postgraduate fellowship in national security affairs from Stanford University.
