Dennis Lormel, Strategic Consultant/Advisor
Mr. Lormel retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in December 2003, following over 30 years of government service, almost 28 years as a Special Agent in the FBI. During his distinguished career, Mr. Lormel amassed extensive major case experience as a street agent, supervisor, and senior executive, particularly in complex, document and labor intensive financial related investigative matters. In December 2000, Mr. Lormel was promoted to Chief of the FBI’s Financial Crimes Program. Immediately following the terrorist attacks of September 2001, Mr. Lormel formulated, established and directed the FBI’s comprehensive terrorist financing initiative. He developed and implemented a variety of proactive and progressive investigative methodologies. These efforts evolved into the formation of a formal Section within the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI, known as The Terrorist Financing Operations Section. Over the last ten years, Mr. Lormel has provided risk advisory consulting services and training related to terrorist financing, money laundering, fraud, financial crimes, suspicious activity, and due diligence. He also offers financial intelligence services through case studies and trend analysis. In addition, he served as an Advisor to the Congressional Anti-Terrorist Financing Task Force and was a contributing expert to The Counterterrorism Blog.
