An FBI spokeswoman in Chicago says a counterterrorism expert will become the new special agent in charge of the agency's Chicago office.

Joan Hyde told The Associated Press Friday that Robert Holley has been selected to replace Cory B. Nelson. Nelson announced he was retiring this summer after around half a year in the high-profile position.

Hyde says a date hasn't been fixed for Holley to assume the post. It'll likely be within a few months.

The FBI's Chicago office is considered one of the busiest in the nation, handling everything from political corruption and mob investigations to cases involving alleged terrorists.

The 55-year-old once worked in Chicago. He also briefly led the FBI's office in Indianapolis. Recently, he's been a deputy assistant director of the FBI counterterrorism division.
