Richard Quinn, a 20-year veteran of the FBI, will become the new special agent in charge of the bureau’s St. Louis division in mid-November.
The FBI announced Tuesday that Quinn will replace former Special Agent in Charge William Woods, who retired in September.
Quinn, who most recently served as the chief of the Media and Investigative Publicity Section in the Office of Public Affairs, began his career as a special agent in 1997. His first assignment was at the New York Field Office, where he investigated terrorism and foreign counterintelligence as a member of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
Quinn also held leadership positions in the Counterterrorism Division at FBI Headquarters and in the Chicago and Philadelphia Field Offices.
