The FBI’s Jacksonville division is getting a new agent in charge.

Tapped for the job was Charles P. Spenser, a 28-year veteran of the bureau with a background in counter-terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and counter-intelligence, The Florida Times-Union reports. 

When Spenser takes over in mid-September, he will replace Michelle S. Klimt, who was the first woman to lead the Jacksonville division when she took the helm in June 2013.

“I am equally proud of the strong working relationships that we have developed with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners,” Klimt said. “I retire with the utmost confidence that this team will continue to build those partnerships to ensure safer communities across North Florida.”

The Florida Times-Union wrote:

Spencer has been the deputy assistant director of the FBI Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate since August 2015, dealing with both domestic and international weapons activities, according to the FBI. He was responsible for managing classified programs designed to prevent foreign and terrorist efforts to obtain weapon capabilities. Prior to that, Spencer was the assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s National Security Branch in New Orleans, leading counter-terrorism, counter-intelligence, cyber, surveillance and crisis management programs.
