ALBANY, NEW YORK, Sept 13, 2017:  Eric Maddox, interrogator, negotiator, author and speaker will deliver a keynote as well as lead a negotiation training to Entrepreneurs’ Organization Albany on Thursday, Sept 21.  Mr. Maddox, recipient of the National Intelligence Medal of Achievement, Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Director’s Award, Legion of Merit, and Bronze Star, will speak about his direct role as lead interrogator in the capture of Saddam Hussein.


In 2003, three months after U.S. forces invaded Iraq, SSG Maddox received unexpected orders to report to the Baghdad International Airport. There he was assigned to a Delta Force Special Operations team in Tikrit. The team was a part of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) responsible for tracking down the most wanted men in the world, or the infamous Deck of Cards. During his six-month tour with this Delta Force team, he conducted over 300 interrogations and collected the intelligence, which directly led to the capture of Saddam Hussein.  For his accomplishments, Eric was awarded the Legion of Merit, the National Intelligence Medal of Achievement, the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Director’s Award and the Bronze Star.

Following the capture of Saddam Hussein, Eric was hired as the first civilian interrogator for the Defense Intelligence Agency where he continued to work with the Joint Special Operations Command in tracking down the U.S. military’s most wanted radical extremists. Since 2003, Eric has conducted over 2,700 interrogations of prisoners from 25 different countries while deploying eight times including: two tours to Iraq, three tours to Afghanistan; and tours to The Philippines, Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as undisclosed locations in Eastern Europe.

Eric served in the U.S. Army and the Defense Intelligence Agency for over 20 years before retiring in 2014. Maddox continues to help corporations, organization, universities, CEO’s, and audiences worldwide, in the art of questioning, negotiations, and information gathering, to use for their advantage.
