Jon Rymer, inspector general at the Defense Department, will step down from his post by Jan. 8 as he plans a return to the financial industry, Military Times reported Monday.

Andrew Tilghman writes that Glenn Fine, principal deputy IG at the Pentagon, will hold the IG role in an acting capacity until the Senate confirms a successor to Rymer.

He has served as IG for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and DoD.

Thomas Gibbons-Neff also reports for the Washington Post that Rymer has led several investigations within the Pentagon and is currently looking into reports about the U.S. Central Command‘s intelligence work on the Islamic State group.
