A Director is at the head of the FBI's hierarchy. The FBI director is appointed by the President on the confirmation of the Senate. Robert S. Mueller, III, who is the current director, took office on September 4, 2001 and was appointed by George W. Bush.

The director serves a ten year term. J. Edgar Hoover, was by far the FBI's longest serving Director. He remained in office until his death in 1972. This is because there was no law stipulating a specific time frame or tenure for which the director would serve.

Overseeing the FBI's day to day functioning is the responsibility of the FBI director. The director ensures the proper handling of cases and operation along with his deputies. The director is also responisble for ensuring that there are qualified agents in the leadership of any of the FBI field offices.
