 Hank Shaw Harold H. Shaw was named SAC (Special Agent in Charge) of the Boston Division in September 2015.

Prior to reporting to Boston, Mr. Shaw served as the SAC of the Counterintelligence Division of the New York Division, where he was responsible for counterintelligence, counterproliferation, and counterespionage programs.

Mr. Shaw entered on duty with the FBI in 1999 and was assigned to the New York Division. He worked as a member of the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) and investigated a variety of international and domestic terrorism matters, including the USS Cole bombing. Mr. Shaw served as a case agent following the September 11, 2001 attacks, actively developing the investigation and pursuing leads tied to the attacks for the next two years.

In 2003, Mr. Shaw was promoted to Supervisory Special Agent and was detailed to the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center (CTC), where he served as one of the first liaison officers between the FBI and CIA in the post 9/11 era. He later served as the Deputy Director for law enforcement for the CTC-International Terrorism Department. In 2005, Mr. Shaw was promoted to Field Supervisor in the New York Division, where he oversaw a JTTF squad responsible for international terrorism matters relating to the Middle East.

His squad received the Director of National Intelligence Meritorious Unit Citation for their work on an international terrorism case.

In November 2011, Mr. Shaw was promoted to ASAC (Assistant Special Agent in Charge) within the Counterterrorism Division of the New York Division, where he provided management for the Division’s international terrorism investigations. In this capacity he led collaborative efforts to disrupt the 2013 attempted bombings of the New York Federal Reserve and worked to help identify and locate subjects tied to the Benghazi attacks. In April 2013, Mr. Shaw was promoted to Section Chief and Deputy Director for law enforcement, and returned to the CTC as a senior liaison between the FBI and CIA.

In July 2014, Mr. Shaw was named SAC of the Intelligence Division at the New York Division.
