The Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG), which represents companies that do business within the Energy Department nuclear cleanup and weapons complex, picked new officers during its annual meeting last week in Washington, D.C.
Michael Lempke, president of the Nuclear and Environmental Group at Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Technical Solutions division, was selected as EFCOG’s new chairman, succeeding Billy Morrison, CEO of Veolia Nuclear Solutions-Federal Services. Sandra Fairchild, director of project services and support at Savannah River Remediation; was elected vice chair. Morgan Smith, president and CEO of Consolidated Nuclear Security, was elected vice chair-elect.
The officers serve one-year terms.
Jack Craig, vice president of Atkins Global, Nuclear Secured, was elected to the EFCOG board for the first time, as was Bob Wilkinson, president of Mission Support Alliance.
Seven executives were re-elected to the EFCOG board. They are Morrison, Fairchild, and Smith, as well as Liz Porter, a senior vice president at Leidos; Mark Whitney, general manager and executive vice president of AECOM’s Nuclear and Environment unit; Jeff Stevens, vice president of operations at BWX Technologies; and Kelly Beierschmitt, deputy director at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.
The Energy Facility Contractors Group has 112 member companies. The organization is open to DOE prime management contractors or their integrated subcontractors. It is also open to entities that support the prime contractors, including subcontractors and consultants, so long as they can make a technical contribution to a working group and are endorsed for membership by a prime contractor.
The organization is led by senior executives from contractors at the Energy Department and its semiautonomous National Nuclear Security Administration.
