Richard Quinn has been named special agent in charge of the FBI’s St. Louis Division.
Quinn’s appointment was announced by FBI Director Christopher Wray earlier this month.
Quinn most recently served as chief of the media and investigative publicity section in the FBI’s office of public affairs. He began his service as a special agent in 1997 and first was assigned to the New York field office where he investigated international terrorism and foreign counterintelligence matters as a member of the joint terrorism task force.
During his career, he also has held leadership positions in the counterterrorism division at FBI headquarters and in the Chicago and Philadelphia field offices.
Quinn replaces William Woods who retired in early September after 22 years with the FBI.
