Nuclear energy group makes changes at the top
Anthony Pietrangelo, senior vice president and chief nuclear officer, will retire after more than 35 years with the lobbying group.
“Pietrangelo has done a tremendous job leading the technical and regulatory focused activities at the Nuclear Energy Institute, and his contributions to the overall safety and operational effectiveness of U.S. nuclear power plants are significant,” Maria Korsnick, NEI’s president and CEO, said.
Beverly Marshall’s role as active vice president of governmental affairs has become permanent following restructuring that was implemented last fall. She is expected to be a crucial leader in developing plans for the energy and environmental sector of the NEI.
Finally, John Kotek, described by the NEI as one of America’s leading experts in nuclear energy technology, has been named vice president of policy development and public affairs. His role includes providing leadership on everything from economic and tax matters to environmental issues the NEI must face.
“This is a particularly important time to advance solutions that preserve existing nuclear power plants and galvanize resources to commercialize the advanced technologies that will cement nuclear energy,” he said.
