Penrose “Parney” C. Albright has been named the director of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Norman J. Pattiz, chairman of Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC (LLNS), which manages the lab for the U.S. Department of Energy, made the announcement Oct. 27.
The appointment takes effect Dec. 1. Albright also will serve as president of LLNS.
Los Alamos National Laboratory Director Charlie McMillan knows Albright and is looking forward to working with him.
“He got to Livermore after I left,” McMillan said Thursday night before the R&D Awards ceremony at the Best Western Hilltop Hotel. “We’ve interacted on global security issues and he will be great to work with.”
Appointed with the concurrence of DOE, Albright is the 11th director of the Lab since it was established in 1952. He replaces George Miller, who is stepping down after six years as lab director.
Albright was selected after a nationwide search that began in June. Albright joined the lab in 2009 as the principal associate director of Global Security, the lab’s program for applying science and technology to the nation’s effort in counterterrorism, nonproliferation, defense, intelligence and energy needs.
