The head of the FBI’s Philadelphia field office, Edward J. Hanko, plans to retire next month following 29 years with the bureau, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Pennsylvania native led the Philadelphia office since 2013, beefing up investigations of terrorism, cyber crime and public corruption.

Hanko, 55, plans to become the vice president of global security for an unidentified Fortune 500 company.

Hanko plans to leave his post on July 31, two years short of the mandatory retirement age for the FBI.

The bureau has not officially made an announcement, and Hanko didn’t return a call for comment.
