Los Alamos National Laboratory Director Charlie McMillan announced the selection of Bret Knapp as the new principal associate director for Weapons Programs Thursday. Knapp has been acting in that position since June 2011 when McMillan left the post to become Laboratory director.
As the head of LANL’s Weapons Programs, Knapp is responsible for the leadership, development, and execution of the Laboratory’s primary mission: ensuring the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear arsenal. The programs have a $1.5 billion annual budget that is split between two directorates with a workforce of more than 1,400.
“Because of Bret’s demonstrated leadership excellence, his broad knowledge of the technical elements of stockpile stewardship, and his distinguished track record as an engineer, he can continue to move the weapons programs forward without missing a beat,” said McMillan. “I have even more confidence in Bret because of his 30 years of technical and leadership supporting stockpile stewardship at all sites across the nation’s nuclear security enterprise.”
