Jill Singer, AT&T National Security

“I was a little girl who didn’t have much growing up, but was smart and landed in leadership with the guidance of mentors and professors in my life.”

Jill Singer, the Vice President of, Defense and National Security at AT&T, shared the story behind her title with us on March 15, 2023.

Jill leads AT&T business activities for the Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Community – delivering strategic technology solutions and services to the military and national security organizations. Her thirty-plus years of government and industry experience include positions as Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the National Reconnaissance Office, Deputy CIO for the Central Intelligence Agency, and Director of the Diplomatic Telecommunications Service for Department of State.

Jill serves on the Board of Trustees for the University of West Florida and as an executive-on-grounds at the University of Virginia. She is a Governing Board member at the International Spy Museum and a six-time Wash100 award recipient.


Jill talks about being the first to go to college in her family and recognizing early on her aptitude for math and science.  Being fiercely independent and the youngest of three, she took that confidence with her throughout her professional journey and now relishes in the work she does helping the U.S. government with their defense and national security innovations.
