JONATHAN SOLOMON RETURNS AS SPECIAL AGENT IN CHARGE
OF THE FBI'S MIAMI DIVISION

Jonathan I. Solomon has returned to the position of Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the FBI's Miami, Florida Division. Mr. Solomon, a 22-year FBI veteran, was serving as the Executive Assistant Director for the FBI's Administrative Service Division.

Mr. Solomon was initially appointed as SAC Miami in March 2004, before being called back to Headquarters to serve as EAD for Administration in May 2004. Over the past year and a half, he has led the men and women of the Administrative branch and made tremendous progress in a number of important areas. To identify just a few: the FBI achieved unprecedented hiring levels and met ambitious hiring goals for Intelligence Analysts. During his tenure, the FBI instituted significant reforms to our career development program, including the establishment of a new Special Agent career path. In addition, he began transforming the Administrative Services Division into two more specialized divisions --- one for Human Resources, the other for Facilities and Logistics Services --- to enable the FBI to better meet significant challenges in those critical areas. We also enhanced our personnel security and information assurance programs, and saw the Bureau through a period of historic budget increases. Mr. Solomon was instrumental in improving communication between Headquarters and the field by serving as the principal point of contact for the FBI Director's Advisory Committees and the FBI Agents Association, and led the FBI's initial response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina.

Director Mueller said, "Jon has a record of achievement in addressing the most pressing administrative issues. I am grateful for his contributions and the Miami Division will benefit from his experience and leadership."

Mr. Solomon joined the FBI in September 1983. He served in the Kansas City, Philadelphia, Buffalo, and Tampa field offices, and has handled a variety of criminal matters including organized and white collar crime. He has also worked extensively on administrative matters including hiring, personnel performance, and inspections. In April 2002, he was appointed Special Assistant to the EAD Administration. He served as Special Assistant to the FBI Director from January 2003 through February 2004.
