Most recently, Mr. Rose served as Chief of the Global Section of the Counterintelligence Division at FBI Headquarters.

Mr. Rose entered on duty as a special agent with the FBI in September 1985.

While in Ottawa, Mr. Rose was responsible for organized crime and counterintelligence matters, working closely with our national and international law enforcement and intelligence community partners. In August 1998, he was appointed Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) for the New York Division's Asian organized crime squad, responsible for the supervision of special agents and detectives of the New York City Police Department involved in investigations of violent Asian gangs and human trafficking.

In July 2001, Mr. Rose was appointed to a temporary duty position as a Team Leader/Assistant Inspector in the Inspection Division at FBI Headquarters. Upon return to the New York Division in August 2002, he was assigned as the Coordinating SSA for the Organized Crime Branch. In May 2003, he was promoted to Assistant Special Agent in Charge of Counterintelligence in the New York Division. He returned to FBI Headquarters as Chief of the Global Section of the Counterintelligence Division in September 2006.
