WASHINGTON—The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) welcomes Michael Mosier as its new Deputy Director and Digital Innovation Officer.  As Deputy Director, Mr. Mosier oversees FinCEN’s wide-ranging work to protect the financial integrity and national security of the United States.  As FinCEN’s first Digital Innovation Officer, Mr. Mosier will advance FinCEN’s engagement with emerging technology and financial innovation.

Mr. Mosier returns to FinCEN from the cryptocurrency analytics, compliance, and investigations firm Chainalysis, where he was Chief Technical Counsel.  Previously, he served as FinCEN’s Chief of Strategic Advancement.

“I am thrilled to have Michael assume this central role on our leadership team,” said FinCEN Director Kenneth A. Blanco.  “He brings a range of public and private sector experience that will help FinCEN proactively engage with industry and government partners to confront emerging threats and to capitalize on diverse opportunities in the financial and national security spaces. Michael is the right person, with the right skills, at exactly the right time.”

Prior to FinCEN, Mr. Mosier was Associate Director at Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).  Prior to Treasury, he was Deputy Chief in the Department of Justice’s Money Laundering & Asset Recovery Section.  He also served a tour at the White House National Security Council as Director for Transnational Organized Crime.  Mr. Mosier began his public service as a prosecutor with the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, and has served as an adjunct law professor at Georgetown University Law Center.  He previously worked at a law firm representing technology, media, and financial services clients.

Mr. Mosier succeeds Jamal El-Hindi, who will be serving as the Department of the Treasury’s Interim Chief Data Officer (CDO), where he will be using his experience at FinCEN to help lead the vision, design, and development of Treasury’s agency-wide data and information management strategies.
