Eastern District of Virginia U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride is giving his fraud unit a face lift.

The U.S. Attorney promoted two people in the Fraud Unit, which is now called the Financial Crimes and Public Corruption Unit, the office announced Friday.

They are:

  • Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Dry
    • New post: Corporate and securities fraud coordinator
    • Old post: Trial attorney
  • Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Samuels
    • New post: Tidewater fraud coordinator (new position)
    • Old post: Trial attorney

The newly renamed unit is led by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Hanly and his deputy, Charles Connolly, who was promoted from the corporate and securities fraud coordinator post last month.

MacBride said in a statement that the changes will help bolster his office’s efforts to combat financial fraud. The Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder has made fighting economic crimes a top priority.
