Management Team - Daniel Bellich
A highly-awarded veteran of 27 years in the FBI, Dan Bellich offers Protek clients extensive expertise in the investigation of a wide range of sophisticated crimes. Prior to co-founding Protek in April 2005, Dan compiled a distinguished record of leadership with the FBI, culminating as the supervisor of the Special Operations Group charged with providing covert support for major operations of the FBI’s Chicago Division.
Previously, Dan supervised a number of FBI units, including: the Mexican drug trafficking squad, the criminal intelligence squad, the fugitive squad and the Chicago FBI Regional Firearms training facility. Dan also supervised the Chicago Division SWAT team. His excellence was reflected during his supervision of the special deployments of the Chicago team, including the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games, the Republican and Democratic national conventions in 1996 and Pope John Paul II’s 1999 visit to St. Louis.
As a supervisor, he also conducted internal affairs investigations in the Chicago Division. In 1997, he was designated as an Assistant Inspector In-Place and in this role conducted inter-office inspections as well as internal affairs investigations in other FBI Divisions.
Dan’s work as case agent on a multi-national Asian heroin case resulted in the largest seizure of heroin in U.S. history at the time. His work on that case earned him the Narcotic Enforcement Officers Association Award of Excellence and was later recounted by his former partner, Geoffrey Doyle, in the book Whitemare. As a case agent, Dan developed expertise in a broad variety of complex white collar crime, organized crime, violent crime and international drug trafficking cases. Prior to joining the F.B.I., Dan worked as a Senior Accountant for Ernst & Ernst conducting commercial and financial institution audits.
