President Barack Obama plans to nominate Glenn Fine, principal deputy inspector general at the Defense Department, to the Pentagon’s IG post.
Fine has been acting IG at the Pentagon since January, the White House said Wednesday.
Prior to DoD, he spent three years at law firm Dechert LLP as a partner in the white collar and securities litigation practice.
Fine also served as an IG at the Justice Department between 2000 and 2011.
He worked as a special counsel to DOJ’s IG and as director of the special investigations and review unit at the department for five years.
He also served for three years as an assistant attorney at the U.S. attorney’s office for the District of Columbia and as a lawyer at Bredhoff & Kaiser from 1989 to 1995.
Fine has a bachelor’s degree in economics from Harvard College, a master’s degree from Oxford University and a juris doctorate degree from Harvard Law School.
