Boardroom Lunch with George Piro, FBI Special Agent in Charge
On Wednesday, September 16th, for the final installment of this season’s Boardroom Lunch series, the South Florida Chapter of the FBA was honored to host as our featured guest, George Piro, FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Miami Field Office. Mr. Piro is in charge of more than 400 special agents whose territory runs from Key West to Fort Pierce. Mr. Piro formerly served as the deputy assistant director of the Weapons and Mass Destruction Directorate at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and also famously interrogated Saddam Hussein after his capture during the U.S.-Iraq war while a member of the FBI’s Counter-terrorism Division. He spoke about this in detail, and it was fascinating. Before joining the FBI, Mr. Piro served as a police officer in Ceres, CA, for nearly 10 years, and previously in the U.S. Air Force after graduating from high school. He received his bachelor’s degree from Chapman University in criminal justice and a master’s degree from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in security studies. He is fluent in Arabic.
