 James W. McJunkin, the head of the FBI’s Washington field office, announced his retirement Thursday after just two years on the job.

Authorities said the retirement is a blow to counterterrorism efforts because McJunkin had a plethora of experience in foiling and investigating terrorist plots, the Washington Post reports.

McJunkin is a former state trooper whose expertise in counterterorrism helped him climb the ranks of the FBI.

McJunkin plans to take a corporate security position in Chicago.

“He’s done a great job,” U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen said in a statement through his spokesman. “He’s a dedicated and committed public servant and he’ll be missed.”

The FBI has not yet announced a replacement.
