“We are very fortunate to have someone of Tim’s caliber on the LASO staff,” said LASO Manager Kevin Smith.

“Tim has already had a remarkable and successful career and I fully expect him to have an immediate and positive influence on our Site Office business operations and to open new doors for the Los Alamos National Laboratory.”

Most of O’Leary’s career has been with the U.S. Coast Guard, and included command of two Coast Guard Cutters.

In addition to serving in several financial and management leadership positions with the Coast Guard, O’Leary was detailed to the Executive Office of the President for the formation of the U.S Department of Homeland Security and served for three years as a Congressional Fellow on staff of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure in the U. S. House of Representatives.

Most recently, O’Leary worked as program manager and senior consultant for AIM Consulting Associates of New London, Conn. He has an undergraduate degree in accounting from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and a Masters of Business Administration from New York University on a fellowship from the Coast Guard.

O’Leary will manage a broad range of activities, directing a segment of complex professional, scientific, engineering, administrative, and technical and support programs.

He is responsible for managing, planning and coordinating the execution of all administrative programs at LASO in the areas of intergovernmental affairs, public affairs, human resources, contracts, site office budget, work authorizations, human resources and controls, records management and personal property oversight.

He also oversees the $2.2 billion budget for Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Management and Operating contractor, Los Alamos National Security, LLC.

He is in the process of relocating his family from Topsail Island, N.C., to Los Alamos.  “Our family is very much looking forward to joining the Los Alamos community.” said O’Leary.
