Statements

From Jim Lee, incoming Chief of CI:

"Jim brings decades of experience to this new role and is the right person to fill this critical position for CI. He has a proven track record of leadership throughout his career with CI, is a mentor to many and will be a great partner to continue to advance the CI mission in the years to come. I look forward to working with him and the rest of the CI leadership team!"

From Jim Robnett, incoming Deputy Chief of CI:

"I'm extremely humbled and energized by the opportunity to become the next Deputy Chief of IRS-CI. While filling this new role was not in my sites when I started my career as a revenue agent years ago, it is certainly the byproduct of the many opportunities I have had to work with the best and brightest the IRS and CI has to offer throughout my career. I've challenged myself in every job I have had to build a team that is successful and brings out the best in everyone—today is the culmination of the work of many. While I am coming to this new job during the final years of my career, the responsibility to mentor and lead the next generation of CI leaders energizes me like no other opportunity. I look forward to working closely with the Chief and Commissioner and am grateful for the trust they have in me to succeed."
