Distribution of FEL and CTO responsibilities
With the departure of Fred Dylla, the Associate Director for FEL and the Lab.s Chief Technology Officer (CTO), I would like to announce the appointment of Dr. George Neil, current FEL Deputy Program Manager as Acting Associate Director for FEL, reporting to the Jefferson Lab Chief Scientist. Gwyn Williams will continue to lead the FEL science program, reporting to the Acting AD for FEL. Michael Kelly will continue his role as Applied Science Program Manager.
Jim Boyce will handle day-to-day Technology Review Committee support and continue his implementation of CRADA and WFO responsibilities, reporting to the Acting AD for FEL.
The Lab Director and the Chief Scientist will share the community relations activities currently handled by the CTO, participating in organizations such as the Hampton Roads Research Partnership, etc.
Fred Dylla has played many important and visible roles at Jefferson Lab and in the larger community, and lab leadership will take any additional steps that may become necessary to continue these critical activities.
I ask you to join me in wishing Fred well as he departs Jefferson Lab, and encourage your support for George, Gwyn and the entire FEL team during this time of transition.
