Victoria Krikorian

Victoria Krikorian, a naturalized U.S. citizen originally from Ukraine, a wife and a proud mother of two sons, is the first woman and the first Navy senior civilian to advise two CNOs on geopolitical global dynamics during an era of strategic competition. A 2022 Presidential Rank Award recipient, she is recognized and respected within the Navy, military, State Department, as well as internationally by senior leaders. She shapes Navy-wide policies and relationships between the U.S Navy and our allies and partners. With over 30 years in operational and policy experience — ranging from deploying to inspect nuclear arms in the former Soviet Union to negotiating Arms Control treaties to setting U.S. policy in the White House’s National Security Council — she has supported defense and naval diplomacy.
