Drew Parenti, head of the FBI’s Sacarmento bureau, is retiring to take a job as vice president of security for Penske Truck Leasing in Reading, Pa., the Sacramento Bee is reporting.

Parenti, 50, a 26 year bureau veteran, said the FBI is “a hard organization to leave,” according to the paper.

U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner told the Bee: “I am very, very sad to see him go. We had some controversial prosecutions a few years ago that obviously took a toll on our relationship” with the Muslim American community, the paper said.

“Drew came in and helped us get on a lot better footing, and I think that has paid dividends for law enforcement and the community,” said Wagner. “He immediately took an interest in reaching out to members of underserved communities.”
