Top Cleveland FBI Agents Promoted To Washington

CLEVELAND (AP) - Two top agents who direct the FBI in northern Ohio have been promoted to jobs at agency headquarters in Washington.

Mark S. Bullock, 43, who became Cleveland's FBI agent-in-charge 10 months ago, was appointed Thursday as deputy assistant director of the FBI's criminal investigative division.

An assistant agent-in-charge, Keith Slotter, 41, who joined the Cleveland office 2½ years ago, was named chief of the financial crimes section, which investigates white-collar crime.

Both men expect to move to Washington in August.

Bullock will direct investigations into public corruption, financial crimes and civil rights violations and will provide help to field offices. He will rank among the FBI's top 50 supervisors.

Bullock joined the FBI in 1983 after working as an accountant at Coopers & Lybrand. He served three months in 1995 as administrative supervisor of the FBI's investigation of the Oklahoma City bombing.

His replacement in Cleveland has not been named. The office employs 166 agents and 125 support personnel.

Slotter, whose wife is an FBI agent, has worked for the FBI for 15 years. He worked undercover in the early 1990s in a telemarketing investigation that led to 300 arrests.

The Cleveland office directs the work of 173 agents and 134 other FBI employees in northern Ohio and has field offices in Akron, Canton, Elyria, Lima, Mansfield, Painesville, Sandusky, Toledo and Youngstown.
