FBI officials on Monday named a new special agent in charge of its Detroit Field Office.

Steven M. D’Antuono most recently served as a section chief in the Criminal Investigative Division at FBI Headquarters in Washington. In that role, he oversaw all white-collar crime programs in the bureau, including corporate securities and commodities fraud, economic crimes, financial institution fraud, money laundering, health care fraud, intellectual property and forensic accountant programs, the FBI said in a statement.

The certified public accountant joined the FBI as a forensic accountant in 1996. He was appointed a special agent in 1998 and investigated white-collar crime and public corruption in the Washington Field Office, where he later supervised a public corruption and government fraud squad, according to the release.

D’Antuono has also been a supervisory special agent at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, where he taught white-collar crime courses, and was an assistant special agent in charge at the St. Louis Field Office, overseeing its criminal and administrative branches.

In Detroit, he replaces Timothy Slater, who has been named new assistant director in charge of the agency's Washington, D.C., field office, officials announced in July.
