Mark Whitney, Acting Assistant Secretary for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM), today named Dana Bryson the Acting Manager for the DOE Carlsbad Field Office (CBFO).
He is replacing Joe Franco, who recently returned to a position in DOE’s Richland Operations Office in Washington. Bryson has more than 30 years of experience in the nuclear industry and served as the CBFO Deputy Manager since December 2013.
Previously, Bryson was the Director of the River Corridor Division for DOE’s Richland Operations Office, where he was responsible for cleanup and restoration of the 220 square miles of the Columbia River Corridor.
“Dana has been an integral part of the EM management team for more than two decades and with the Department for more than 30 years and we are confident he is up to the challenges presented by the WIPP recovery project,” Whitney said.
The Department of energy is currently considering qualified candidates to fill the CBFO Manager position.
