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.

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.

All Ed Hanko’s parents wanted was for their son to achieve more than they did.

Hanko did just that, recently finishing a 29-year career with the FBI and retiring as the special agent in charge of the bureau’s Philadelphia field office, The Citizens Voice reports.

His dad was a coal miner. His mom worked in a dress factory,” The Citizens Voice wrote. “Neither finished high school and both had health problems.”

Hanko’s job in the Philadelphia office put him in charge of the eastern part of the state, including his hometown of Wilkes-Barre.

“For me, looking back, it’s quite an accomplishment to come from those humble beginnings,” Hanko said in a telephone interview with the Citizens Voice. “I got to appreciate what is was like to be at the low end of the economic scale. But it didn’t dissuade me.”
