David Gelios, the head of the Detroit FBI since late 2015, who oversaw a number of major investigations involving public corruption in Macomb County and Detroit, is retiring to take a job with Roger Penske's organization, Roop Raj of Fox 2 reports.
Gelios will reach the FBI's mandatory retirement age of 57 in September. He will step down at the end of the month. A replacement has yet to be named.
"I'll be a west region vice president of security situated out of San Diego, California," Gelios tells Fox 2.
Gelios, an affable man who was not easily shaken, served as the chief inspector of the FBI’s Inspection Division before coming to Detroit. His duties included overseeing all FBI field office inspections, national program reviews and agent-involved shooting investigations.
He's been with the FBI since 1995.
A native of Ohio and graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., he is a former high school teacher, college coach and University of California employee.
