Patrick Maley, head of the Birmingham, Ala. FBI office, has picked to become South Carolina’s Inspector General to head up a new agency, according to the Post and Courier.

Gov. Nikki Haley made the announcement on Wednesday.

Haley, 53, a 30 year veteran of the FBI, must be confirmed by the Senate for a four-year term, the paper reported.

“His 30 years of experience with the FBI, focusing on fraud, waste, managing costs and program evaluations will be a tremendous asset to South Carolina,” she said. “Combine that with him being a CPA and dealing with white collar crimes throughout his career.”
