Jon Rymer, current inspector general at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., has been appointed to serve as IG at the Defense Department, GovExec reported Monday.
Charles Clark writes the Pentagon’s IG post has remained vacant since December 2011 and Deputy Inspector General Lynne Halbrooks has led the IG office since then under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act.
Rymer served as interim IG at the Securities and Exchange Commission before joining the FDIC seven years ago, according to GovExec.
Rymer has also served as a director at KPMG and an executive vice president at the Bank of Arkansas.
He leads the audit team of the Council of Inspectors General for Integrity and Efficiency and served as an active and reserve officer in the U.S. Army for 33 years, Clark reports.
