Phillip Kunsberg became familiar with Los Alamos in the mid- to late-1980s, when he worked with scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) as a policy officer in the Department of Defense.
He moved to Los Alamos in 1989 and started the Technology Institute, a nonprofit organization that brought Russian and American scientists together to work on “non-lethal” activities. Kunsberg eventually became a technical staff member for the lab.
Kunsberg moved to New York City in 1996 to work for a venture capital firm.
He returned to Los Alamos in 2001 to again work for the lab, but was pulled back to Washington by President George W. Bush to serve on the executive staff of a presidential commission investigating what went wrong with intelligence assessments of WMDs in Iraq.
Kunsberg was also involved with startup renewable energy companies before taking the reins at Central Park Square.
