One of the most important jobs at the FBI is the position of deputy director.

On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey named 25-year bureau veteran Mark Giuliano to the job, which makes him responsible for overseeing all domestic and international investigations, the Washington Post reports.

He’ll begin his new duties when the current deputy Sean Joyce retires on Dec. 2.

Giuliano started his career as a special agent at the Washington Field Office and has plenty of experience in national security and counterterrorism, the Post wrote.

WASHINGTON — In the middle of the Pakistani night, near the border with Afghanistan, a team of FBI agents dressed in native garb descended on a hotel room. One of those agents, Sean M. Joyce, kicked in the door, tackled a screaming Pakistani man and threw him to the ground.

The 1997 raid resulted in the capture of Mir Aimal Kasi, who was later executed for murdering two CIA employees outside the agency’s Langley headquarters. And it marked a milestone in the ascension of Joyce, who in September became the FBI’s deputy director, the bureau’s second-ranking job.

With his wire glasses, receding hairline and thick Boston accent, Joyce could be mistaken for a college professor or corporate executive. In fact, he nearly was — he graduated from business school, interned on Wall Street and fielded job offers from leading financial firms.

But Joyce, 50, was drawn to law enforcement because, he said, “there’s something more to life than just making a lot of money.’’

WASHINGTON — Sean Joyce, a Boston native, is the new assistant director of the FBI’s International Operations Division. He replaces Tom Fuentes, who retired.

“The International Operations Division’s scope of responsibilities is greater than ever, given the importance that relationships with international law enforcement partners and other parts of the government hold to our overall national security mission,” said FBI Director Robert Mueller III in a statement. “Sean’s knowledge and his experience in criminal and national security matters make him an excellent fit for the job.”
