The special agent in charge of Chicago’s Field Office plans to retire in late August following 20 years with the bureau, The Chicago Tribune reports.
Robert Holley, who once led international terrorism investigations, conducted work for the FBI in Yemen, Iraq, Pakistan, Tanzania, India and Isreal.
Holley’s career began in 1995 at the Chicago FBI office, where he received several promotions. He also served as deputy assistant director in the Counterterrorism Division and was the special agent in charge of the FBI Indianapolis Division.
“I am most proud of having the opportunity to lead the Chicago Field Office and work with these men and women every day,” Holley said Tuesday in a FBI news release. “I am amazed by their dedication and what they do for the citizens of the United States every day.”
Like many retiring agents, Holley has accepted a job in the private sector. He will work on Discover Financial Services’ Global Security Team after his retirement on Aug. 20.
