Theodore J. Gibbons is the Deputy Director and senior civilian leader of the NSA, and Henry Peck's boss.
Gibbons graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1976 and holds an advanced degree in engineering. He started his career at the NSA as a computer scientist within the National Computer Security Center, was promoted to NSA's Senior Executive Service in 2009 and subsequently served in a variety of leadership assignments.
At some point he joined the Air National Guard from which he retired as a Brigadier General in 2004. His NSA assignments include service across signals intelligence operations, information assurance policy and time-sensitive operations.
In April 2012 he contacted Henry Peck off the record to congratulate him on a report he submitted that led to the arrest of a high-level suspect and thus prevented a major terrorist attack. (“No Good Deed”)
