Robert Zink, chief of the Justice Department’s fraud section, has been promoted to serve as acting deputy assistant attorney general of the department’s criminal division, where he will oversee its fraud and appellate sections, a spokesman confirmed Thursday.
Mr. Zink will fill a role created by the departure of John Cronan, who was nominated by the Trump administration to serve as a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Mr. Cronan’s nomination was confirmed by the Senate and he was sworn in as a judge last month.
Daniel Kahn, a fraud section senior deputy chief, will take over as acting chief of the section. Joseph Beemsterboer, another fraud section senior deputy chief, will become the acting principal deputy of the section, the spokesman said.
