Raymond V. Furstenau Named Acting Executive Director for Operations

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission announced today that Raymond V. Furstenau, currently head of the agency's Office of Research, has been named as acting Executive Director for Operations effective Jan. 27, upon Daniel Dorman's retirement and until a permanent replacement is selected.

The EDO position is the highest-ranking NRC career position with responsibilities for overseeing the agency's operational and administrative functions and serving as the chief operating officer.

"Ray is a seasoned executive with exemplary communication and management skills. He's the right person to lead the NRC staff while the Commission works together to identify a permanent Executive Director for Operations," said NRC Chair Christopher Hanson.

Furstenau joined the NRC in 2018. Previously, he served at the Department of Energy in a variety of roles, including acting as Assistant Secretary of Nuclear Energy and working at the DOE Idaho Operations Office for more than 28 years. Furstenau served as an officer in the Army Finance Corps and in the Army Reserve. He holds a bachelor's degree in applied science and engineering from the U.S. Military Academy and a master's degree in nuclear science and engineering from Idaho State University.
