FinCEN announces changes in its leadership

By Thomas G. Wolfe, J.D.

With FinCEN Director Kenneth Blanco stepping down soon, Michael Mosier will serve as Acting Director. AnnaLou Tirol has assumed the post of FinCEN Deputy Director.

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network has announced "several leadership changes impacting the bureau." FinCEN Director Kenneth Blanco noted that he will depart FinCEN on April 9 after having served as the organization’s director since December 2017. Michael Mosier, a former FinCEN Deputy Director and currently serving as Counselor to the Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, will return to FinCEN as FinCEN’s Acting Director on April 11. In addition, AnnaLou Tirol, former Associate Director of FinCEN’s Strategic Operations Division, has been named as FinCEN Deputy Director.

Blanco remarked that serving as FinCEN’s eighth director "has been a wonderful and rewarding experience for me. I am proud to have led an incredible organization with an important national security mission that has a profound effect on the lives of so many people, especially the most vulnerable in our society." Further, "I have every confidence in Mr. Mosier and Ms. Tirol’s ability to lead the bureau forward and continue the progress of ensuring our national security and protecting people from harm."
