Leadership Team

We selected nine individuals to lead the Fluor Idaho team because of their relevant technical and business-management experience; consistent track record for on-time, within-cost project delivery; personal commitment to safety; and skill in streamlining processes to realize cost efficiencies. They have worked with one another before as colleagues at various DOE project sites, including Idaho, Hanford, Fernald, Portsmouth, and Paducah. Together, they have 165 years of DOE experience, including 28 years of experience at the Idaho Site. This senior management team will lead a projectized organization structured to execute the work scope efficiently, implement the most appropriate and cost-effective technical approaches, leverage the lessons learned from other Fluor-managed DOE projects, and provide accountability to DOE and stakeholders for overall project performance as we disposition transuranic waste (TRU), spent nuclear fuel, and high-level radioactive waste.
