Amy Hess, executive assistant director of the FBI’s criminal, cyber, response and services branch, will step down from her role to serve as the agency’s chief of public services, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday. Hess will be based at the FBI’s Louisville, Ky. location, where she previously served as special agent for two years.

The more than two-decade FBI veteran was named to her most recent position in August 2018 and was responsible for leading a range of operations involving cybersecurity, civil rights, public corruption and white-collar crime.

She previously held assistant director roles at the FBI’s science and technology branch in Washington, D.C. as well as its operational technology division in Quantico, Va.
