FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – General Michael Hayden, a retired four-star general and former director of the CIA and NSA, will serve as a keynote speaker at The Work Truck Show 2018. Hayden’s address will take place Thursday, March 8, as part of the President’s Breakfast & NTEA Annual Meeting.

As head of the CIA and NSA from 1999-2009, General Hayden was on the front line of global change, the war on terrorism and the growing cyber security challenge. In addition to leading CIA and NSA, General Hayden was the country’s first principal deputy director of national intelligence and the highest-ranking military intelligence officer in the country.

“This is one of the most relevant keynote addresses you will have the opportunity to hear,” said Todd Davis, 2018 NTEA Convention chairman, and vice president of Phenix Enterprises. “General Hayden is an expert on intelligence matters like cyber security, government surveillance and geopolitics, and he has dedicated his life to protecting both American security and liberty. He will offer an invaluable perspective on navigating through key challenges industry businesses face today.”

Today, Hayden serves as a principal at Chertoff Group and a visiting professor at George Mason University Schar School of Policy and Government.
