By Roger Snodgrass

Los Alamos National Laboratory announced a change at the top Tuesday.

Charles McMillan becomes principal associate director for Weapons Programs, succeeding Glenn Mara, who has retired.

McMillan advances from his previous role as associate director for weapons physics.

His new responsibilities call for providing oversight and direction for the nuclear weapons program at the lab and its core mission, “ensuring the safety, reliability and performance of the nation’s nuclear deterrent.”

“This is one of the most challenging and most important national Security jobs at Los Alamos,” LANL Director Michael Anastasio said, in making the announcement. “Charlie brings the scientific background, technical innovation and vision to lead the Laboratory’s programs in the areas of sustaining the stockpile and providing a path to a 21st-century stockpile.”  

In a brief interview Tuesday, McMillian talked about change and new opportunities.
