The last time we wrote about former CIA Executive Director A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard was in 2007, when he quit the advisory board of Blackwater Worldwide.

The resignation came after a congressional committee asked his brother, then-State Department Inspector Gen. Howard “Cookie” Krongard, about family ties to the private security firm.

Howard Krongard said he hadn’t known about his brother’s involvement with the company.

He left his post as inspector general in 2008, after he was accused of impeding investigations into Blackwater and into irregularities in the construction of the U.S. embassy compound in Baghdad.

Since then, Howard Krongard has stayed off the public radar.

His brother and sister-in-law, on the other hand, hold seats on numerous boards.

Buzzy Krongard, former chairman of Alex. Brown & Sons, is a director of Iridium Communications, Under Armour and the Johns Hopkins Health System. He’s also a trustee of In-Q-Tel, the CIA venture arm that invests in security technologies.

His wife, Cheryl Gordon Krongard, a former senior partner of Apollo Management, is a director of Legg Mason and US Airways.
