Mr. Lormel also served as an Advisor to the Congressional Anti-Terrorist Financing Task Force and was a contributing expert to The Counterterrorism Blog. Mr. Lormel was presented with the 2010 Association of Anti-Money Laundering Specialists Volunteer of the Year Award.

Mr. Lormel’s private sector career followed 30 years of government service, with 28 years as a Special Agent in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. During his distinguished public service career, Mr. Lormel amassed extensive major case experience as a street agent, supervisor and senior executive, particularly with regard to complex, document review and labor intensive financial analysis related investigative matters. In December 2000, Mr. Lormel was promoted to Chief of the FBI's Financial Crimes Program.

Immediately following the terrorist attacks of September 2001, Mr. Lormel formulated, established and directed the FBI's comprehensive terrorist financing initiative. He developed and implemented a variety of proactive and progressive investigative methodologies. These efforts evolved into the formation of a formal Section within the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI, known as the Terrorist Financing Operations Section. This multi-agency, multi-disciplined entity attained international recognition as one of the world’s elite operations for tracking, investigating and disrupting terrorist-related financial activity. For his visionary contributions, Mr. Lormel received numerous commendations and awards to include the Department of Justice, Criminal Division's Award for Investigative Initiative and the Central Intelligence Agency's George H. W. Bush Award for Excellence in Counterterrorism.
