National security expert John Quattrocki joins IWP faculty

John Quattrocki, who currently serves as a Vice President at CACI’s National Solutions Group, has recently joined the IWP faculty, and is teaching the Case Studies in Counterintelligence Operations class this fall. 

Prof. Quattrocki first taught at IWP two years ago, filling in for Brian Kelley, a beloved professor who passed away in September 2011. 

“We are delighted to have John back in the classroom,” says founder and president John Lenczowski.  “He is one of the greatest authorities in America in his field, and his students are especially lucky that he has been able to carve out time to pass on his wisdom to the next generation.”

An expert on U.S. national security, Prof. Quattrocki is retired from the Senior Executive Service with 19 years of operational experience.  His work has focused on Russia, the countries of the (former) Warsaw Pact, China, Taiwan, Islamic extremist groups, and domestic terrorist threats.

He has ten years of experience in national security policy development and implementation at the Senior Executive level on the National Security Council staff, where he served as a policy advisor to the National Security Advisor, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, and the NSC.  In this role, he worked on counterintelligence policy, intelligence policy for the Global War on Terrorism, intelligence and security policy in homeland security matters, U.S. government policy in matters of classification and declassification, and U.S. intelligence community transformation and re-engineering. 

Prof. Quattrocki holds a B.S. in Political Science and an area of concentration in Constitutional Law from Northern Illinois University, and has studied at the Defense Language Institute and at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
