Matt Gorham, formerly deputy assistant director for FBI’s Critical Incident Response Group, will serve as the special agent in charge of the law enforcement agency’s counterterrorism division at the Washington field office.
He will assume his new duties in May, the bureau said Thursday.
Gorham joined FBI in 1995 and was assigned to handle violent crime and drug investigations within the Pittsburgh division prior to his work in the area of counterterrorism.
He also directed FBI’s operations in Iraq and Afghanistan as a member of the international operations division.
Gorham has also held several leadership roles within the bureau’s criminal investigative division, Richmond division and the cyber division.
