CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation has named two new vice presidents, splitting up the work of Ty Blackford, the former vice president of decommissioning, waste and fuels, and remediation services.
Chief executive officer John Ciucci created the sludge treatment project and the waste, fuels and remediation services project effective June 15. Making sludge treatment a separate project will allow the contractor to increase its strong focus on that critical effort, he said.
Raymond Geimer has been named vice president of the sludge treatment project starting June 15. He comes to Hanford from CH2M Hill B&W in West Valley, N.Y., where he was vice president and deputy general manager. He also worked at Hanford when CH2M Hill held the tank farm contract. He has 31 years of experience in radioactive waste management, nuclear and facility engineering, nuclear facility operations, large-scale deactivation and demolition, and nuclear facility construction.
Connie Simiele has been named vice president of waste, fuels and remediation services starting June 15. She has most recently served as director of waste and fuels management for CH2M Hill at Hanford. She has 27 years of leadership experience in facility operations, safety, health and quality assurance.
