Michael Vickers, defense undersecretary for intelligence since March 2011, will retire from the federal government on April 30 after a four-decade career that saw him hold his current role for a longer tenure than any other official.

The Defense Department announced Vickers’ pending retirement Thursday and noted his work with four different defense secretaries and two presidents — George W. Bush and Barack Obama — in his current and other roles at the Pentagon.

Vickers’ federal career has included time as assistant defense secretary for special operations/low-intensity and interdependent capabilities from July 2007 to March 2011.

He held the role of undersecretary for intelligence on an acting basis between January 2011 and March 2011 before he took the role on a full-time basis.

His career also includes service in the U.S. Army‘s special forces and in the CIA as an operations officer.
