As you are aware, Michael Brandt joins the Lab as the Deputy Lab Director for Operations on March 5. Until then, Kim Williams, our Chief Financial Officer, is serving as interim Deputy Lab Director for Operations and Minh Huebner is serving as Interim CFO. We are making additional changes in operations to facilitate this transition and continue to assure a strong Operations Leadership team.
Effective March 5, Ellen Ford, who has been serving as the Interim Chief Projects and Construction Manager, will return to the office of the DLD for Operations as the Senior Advisor to the Deputy Lab Director for Operations. Ellen’s extensive knowledge of Operations will help Michael get up to speed quickly on current initiatives and projects.
Jim Floyd will take on the role of Interim Chief of the Projects and Construction Office (PCO), and his deputy Jack Salazar will serve as Interim EH&S Division Director.
Michelle Flynn, who has been serving as Interim Senior Advisor to the Deputy Lab Director for Operations, is now focused on working with the ALS-U team as a project manager for Operations support.
Please join me in thanking this team for their service in such important roles throughout Operations.
