Bill Kirby, the deputy project manager for Washington Closure Hanford, will move to CH2M Hill to take Ciuccis former position on Oct. 1.
Ciucci has 30 year of experience leading operations and projects, including 24 years in Department of Energy nuclear project management.
Before taking the Hanford job, he served as the director of environmental management for the Nevada Test Site.
