Dominion Energy hires FBI’s Richmond Division chief, Adam Lee, as chief security officer

dominion energyDominion Energy announced that Adam S. Lee, special agent in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Richmond Division since 2014, will join the company as vice president and chief security officer, effective Dec. 1, 2018.

In his post – which is the company’s first – Lee will be responsible for physical and cyber security across Dominion Energy’s footprint. He will be expected to direct the development and implementation of corporate security policies and procedures that protect physical and cyber assets and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including those dealing with privacy. He will liaise with all outside government and law enforcement officials on physical and cyber security matters for the company.

“Adam Lee brings unparalleled experience to Dominion Energy as we work to harden our physical and cyber assets and protect them from potential bad actors,” said Thomas F. Farrell, II, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “He is well-respected in law enforcement both around Virginia and our nation, and I expect him to do a tremendous job at our company, just as he has done for more than 20 years in the FBI.”

Lee – who has announced his retirement from the FBI after a career spanning 22 years in intelligence, white collar and cyber crimes, honest services fraud, among others –  was previously chief of the FBI’s Public Corruption and Civil Rights Section. In 2017, he was appointed by former FBI Director James Comey to lead a comprehensive study of the FBI’s headquarters and organizational model. Lee’s experience there also includes leading the Central Virginia Domestic Security Alliance Council (DSAC) – which is composed of selected Fortune 500 companies within Virginia – and providing investigative and technical support on complex cyber intrusions and managing the FBI’s relationship with government and private sector in Virginia in the areas of organizational risk, insider threat and cyber intrusion detection.

Lee earned a bachelor’s degree from San Francisco State University and a J.D. from John F. Kennedy University’s School of Law.

He will report to Rodney Blevins, senior vice president and chief information officer.
