The Tennessee Valley Authority named Dave Stinson, former recovery manager for TVA's Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant Unit 3, as vice president for the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant Unit 2 construction project.

Stinson joined TVA in 1992 and helped return Browns Ferry Unit 3 to service in 1995.

Stinson takes over from Marie Gillman, who managed the Watts Bar 2 project on a temporary basis since Jan. 28, following the departure of Masoud Bajestani.

Stinson most recently worked at Shaw Areva MOX Services, where he served as president and chief operating officer from 2006 to 2010. In that position, he headed design, construction and licensing of the Department of Energy facility being built in South Carolina to convert surplus nuclear weapons material to mixed-oxide, or MOX, fuel for nuclear power plants.

Stinson is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy.
