The Nuclear Regulatory Commission announced this week it has named Arthur Howell, a 28-year veteran of the NRC, to be the new administrator of the commissionâs Region IV office in Arlington, Texas. Sitting administrator Elmo Collins will retire on March 31.
âOver the course of his career, Art Howell has repeatedly demonstrated an exemplary commitment to technical and managerial excellence,â said William Borchardt, the NRCâs Executive Director for Operations. âThe experience he has gained in a wide variety of NRC assignments will serve the agency well.â
A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Howell served as an officer on a nuclear submarine before working for Pacific Bell and the Impell Corp. He earned a Master of Arts degree in National Security Studies from Georgetown University in 1990. He joined the NRC in 1985 as an inspector.
