Chicago’s new FBI chief is a 20-year veteran who most recently headed up the New Orleans office, where he oversaw investigations into former Mayor Ray Nagin and the Deepwater Horizon environmental disaster.

Michael J. Anderson, the new special agent in charge, begins his new job in mid-October, according to an FBI press release.

Anderson began his FBI career in 1995, and besides New Orleans, he has worked in Miami, Washington, D.C., and Dallas.

During his time in the nation’s capital, he supervised investigations of super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff and Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson.

Anderson also oversaw the Hurricane Fraud Initiative, aimed at tackling Katrina-related public corruption and government fraud.

Anderson, 48, is a native of Alexandria, Minnesota. He is married with one daughter.
