The LLCs manage Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, Calif. and Los Alamos National Laboratory, respectively, for the U.S. Department of Energy. The appointments take effect Sept. 1. Kintzer assumes the positions previously held by Nicholas G. Moore who is stepping down effective Aug. 31.

Kintzer also has been appointed chair of the LANS/LLNS Boards of Governors’ Ethics and Audit Committee effective Sept. 1. The Ethics and Audit Committee serves in an advisory role to the boards on the integrity of financial reporting, policy compliance, and ethical business practices.

“Don Kintzer is a seasoned business professional with exceptional leadership skills, business expertise and experience involving large complex organizations,” Pattiz said.

“When the University of California was the sole manager of the laboratories, Don was a senior advisory partner for the University and Los Alamos National Laboratory. He has an excellent understanding of the management and operations of the national labs and of business compliance activities.” 

“I am honored to be appointed to these prestigious boards and to be associated with such premier research and development organizations as Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos National Laboratories, which play a critical role in pursuing breakthroughs in science and technology to meet important and vital national needs,” Kintzer said.

 Kintzer currently is associated with Korora Partners, a Silicon Valley-based consulting company focused on general business advisory and executive coaching/mentoring services. He retired as a partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
