SRR president leaving SRS for new role at Hanford Site


Savannah River Remedia­tion President Dave Olson is leaving his role with Sa­van­nah River Site’s liquid waste contractor for a new position at the U.S. Energy Depart­ment’s Hanford Site in Washington state.

“It is with a humble heart I tell you that I have accepted the position of President and Project Manager of Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) effective July 1, 2013,” Olson said Thursday in a memo to employees.

The contract involves managing high-level waste in tanks similar to those at SRS. Olson will replace Mike Johnson, a former SRS high-level waste manager, who is retiring from the Hanford position at the end of June.

Savannah River Remedia­tion’s operations and deputy project manager, Stuart MacVean, has been named interim president and project manager.
