NRC Names Senior Positions

Nuclear Regulatory Commission names new senior positions

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission announced senior personnel changes to help streamline agency management.

All of the changes require NRC approval and will happen in early November. They include:
Deputy Executive Director for Material, Waste, Research, State, Tribal and Compliance Programs Mike Weber will become director of the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research; Deputy Director for Engineering in the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation Jennifer Uhle will become director of the Office of New Reactors; and Director of Nuclear Materials Safety and Safeguards Catherine Haney will become the Region II regional administrator in January, succeeding Victor McCree. McCree is the NRC’s Executive Director for Operations.
The position vacated by Weber will now take on additional responsibilities and will now be known as the Deputy EDO for Materials, Waste, Research, State, Tribal, Compliance Administration and Human Capital (DEDM). The new position reduces one deputy EDO position and moves the Office of Administration and the Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer under the new title. Darren Ash, the current deputy EDO for corporate management, remains as the agency’s Chief Information Officer and the Office of Information Services is renamed the Office of the Chief Information Officer.
