A senior official who headed the FBI's response to the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California, is expected to replace FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, The Washington Post reported Monday night.

David Bowdich began his career as a police officer in Albuquerque, and was described by the department's Deputy Police Chief Robert Huntsman as "very ambitious, very smart, and very physically fit," the Albuquerque Journal reported.

According to the Los Angeles Times, which interviewed him in 2015, Bowdich's idea of a G-man is epitomized by the characters in the 1960s television series "The Untouchables."

"Eliot Ness' character was unyielding, tenacious, principled," he said. "That describes what a law enforcement professional should be."

Here are some of Bowdich's career highlights:

  • Bowdich joined the FBI in 1995 as a special agent and served as a SWAT team member and sniper at the agency's San Diego field office, investigating violent crimes and fans.
  • In 2009, he was named the assistant special agent in charge of the bureau's San Diego office, tasked with identifying the emerging kidnapping trend of Mexican cartel-related groups. There, he created the country's first FBI squad to pinpoint kidnapping threats on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.
  • In 2014, he was named the assistant director in charge of the FBI's Los Angeles field office, overseeing seven Southern California counties with a population of nearly 19 million people, the L.A. Times reported.
  • In December 2015, Bowdich and investigators had pieced together what the married couple responsible for the deadly mass slaying in San Bernardino were doing in the four hours before the shooting, the L.A. Times reported.
