Joe Preble Named New LCLSII Jefferson Lab Senior Team Leader

LCLSII Jefferson Lab Senior Team Lead – Message from Lab Director Hugh Montgomery

A search for the Jefferson Lab Senior Team Leader for the LCLSII Project has been completed.

We are delighted that Joe Preble, head of SRF Operations, has accepted the position and will take office effective September 1, 2015.

This project, to construct a 4 GeV Superconducting RF accelerator and FEL, involves a collaboration between Argonne National Laboratory, Cornell University, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory the host laboratory, and Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.  Joe will replace George Neil, who has led our team from the inception of the project about two years ago. We wish Joe all the best in this position. We would also like to express our appreciation for George's leadership in this all-important initial phase of the project.
