Madelyn Creedon, Assistant Secretary, Global Strategic Affairs

(Liz Lynch)

For much of the past two decades while serving as counsel and lead staffer on the Strategic Forces Subcommittee on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Creedon submersed herself in the details of legislation and policy that came before the panel. It was that granular level of understanding and her connections in the area that allowed her to move to the Pentagon's Global Strategic Affairs Office. "I had good familiarity with the people and had participated in the areas of a lot of the legislation over the years. All of these were relationships that played into this job," she said. Creedon, 61, oversees nuclear, ballistic-missile, space, and cyber strategy at the Pentagon. The Pentagon regards each of those issue areas as a priority, but Creedon said that on any given day, "hot spots" flare up. Maintaining stronger partnerships with allies is a principal goal of Creedon's. She pointed to efforts to make U.S. missiles compatible or "inter-operable" with those of NATO allies as well as South Korea and Japan as an example of a top priority. An Indianapolis native, Creedon is a big college basketball fan. "This is a very delicate question in my family," she said. Her dad went to Indiana University and her sister went to Purdue, so she tends to root for Big 10 teams. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Evansville and a law degree from St. Louis University.
