March 22, 2010

OAK RIDGE, Tenn.—Kendric (Ken) J. Perry has been promoted to the new planning group manager for ORAU's National Security and Emergency Management Programs (NSEMP). Perry previously served as senior operations planner for NSEMP, where he was chief of staff for the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) Office of Emergency Response (NA-42) and provided support to the Science and Technology Program.

In his new role, Perry will provide support to NA-42 through planning and policy, operations, National Incident Management System/Incident Command System training, consequence management, first responder, and technology integration and equipment recapitalization. He will also provide operational response staffing for the Nuclear Incident Team and Incident Management Assist Team, and program support to DOE NNSA's Office of National Technical Nuclear Forensics and the Office of International Emergency Management and Cooperation.

"As chief of staff for NA-42, Ken's performance was superb in ensuring that the program ran smoothly and efficiently," said Dave Hackemeyer, vice president and director for NSEMP. "His knowledge of DOE programs will enable us to provide more timely and focused support to our customers."

Before becoming NSEMP's planning group manager, Perry served in a variety of leadership positions over the last 20 years with DOE and the U.S. Air Force, including serving as an U.S. Air Force officer, of which he recently retired.

He received a bachelor's of science degree in computer science from Michigan Technological University in 1989 and a master's of science in administration from Central Michigan University in 1992.
