A new leader has been named for Savannah River Nuclear Solutions.
Carol Johnson, a 30-year veteran of the nuclear and environmental management industry, will take over as president and CEO at SRNS, the management and operating contractor for the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site.
Former president and CEO Dwayne Wilson announced earlier in May that he’d be leaving for another position with Fluor Corp., a global engineering and construction firm that makes up SRNS with two other companies. Wilson was with SRNS for three years.
Johnson most recently served as president and project manager of the Washington Closure Hanford, where she led the $2.4 billion environmental cleanup of a 220-square-mile site at the Columbia River Corridor near Richland, Wash. She retired there in 2013.
Johnson also was an infrastructure executive director at the Sellafield project in the United Kingdom, responsible for nuclear safety-related infrastructure and site services for the annual $2 billion nuclear program. In addition, she’s held technical and managerial assignments at SRS, the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the Idaho National Laboratory.
