Before being appointed General Counsel to the CIA, Mr. McNamara served as Assistant General Counsel for Enforcement at the Department of the Treasury. Prior to that, he was Deputy Director of Enforcement at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which oversees institutional markets and regulates commodity professionals. Mr. McNamara also served as General Counsel of the Peace Corps, Legislative Counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, Assistant U.S. Attorney and Assistant Majority Counsel of the U.S. Senate Watergate Committee.
McNamara graduated in 1973 from Georgetown University Law Center, received an A.B. from John Carroll University in 1968 and a B.A. from Mount Carmel College in 1967.
“That a luminary of McNamara’s caliber and profile should engage with us is testament of the glaring need to more effectively protect sensitive information – from inception through delivery and afterward,” said Michael Mansouri, president and CEO of OmniTrust Security Systems. “I am gratified that Bob recognizes in OmniTrust a solution to a grave problem of national dimensions: as a result, I have no doubt that Bob will further our efforts immeasurably in penetrating the government marketplace.”
