Director Robert S. Mueller, III announced today the appointment of Kevin Perkins as the FBI’s associate deputy director. Mr. Perkins replaces Thomas J. Harrington, who is retiring from the FBI after more than 27 years as a special agent, manager, and executive, for a position in the private sector.

Mr. Perkins entered on duty as a special agent in January 1986. He served in the Kansas City and Baltimore Divisions, where he investigated and supervised white-collar crime and public corruption. At Headquarters, he managed insurance fraud and money laundering investigations in the Criminal Investigative Division. He also served as chief of the Inspection Division’s Audit, Evaluation, and Analysis Section and later as the division’s assistant director.

In the field, he served as assistant special agent in charge of the Philadelphia Division, responsible for the white-collar crime and computer intrusion programs. He was appointed special agent in charge of the Baltimore Division in January 2004.

In February 2006, Mr. Perkins returned to Headquarters as assistant director of the Finance Division. In that role, he was the Bureau’s chief financial officer and managed budget formulation and execution, the appropriations process, procurement, financial audits, and other money matters.

He is a certified public accountant and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

“In his new role, Kevin will be responsible for the key areas of personnel, budget, administration, and infrastructure,” said Director Mueller. “He brings more than 26 years of Bureau experience to the position, as well as a track record as an effective leader. I have every expectation that he will continue to build upon our core business functions, with a keen focus on critical administrative matters and strategic reform.”

Mr. Perkins will assume his new responsibilities in mid-July.
