September 2016 – Idaho National Laboratory (INL) engaged Potomac Recruiting to conduct a search for a Deputy Associate Laboratory Director for National and Homeland Security (N&HS) Programs, and we are pleased to announce that we have successfully placed a highly qualified candidate. INL is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center and the Department of Energy’s lead laboratory for nuclear energy research. Their N&HS directorate plays a crucial role in the organization, providing innovative science, technology, and physical solutions to secure critical infrastructure and preventing the proliferation of nuclear and radiological weapons of mass destruction. INL was seeking an accomplished leader capable of articulating an inspiring vision and guiding the directorate towards an exciting future, and able to work effectively with the Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, Intelligence Community, industry, and other stakeholders to position INL as the intellectual leader in national and homeland security programs.
Potomac Recruiting conducted an extensive, nationwide search for the perfect candidate, conducted in-depth behavioral interviews of the top contenders, and ultimately presented INL with several uniquely qualified individuals. We are proud to announce that INL selected and hired one of our top candidates, an experienced operational technology executive who has worked in the information security industry for over two decades. He has supported federal clients in the Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, and Department of Homeland Security, as well as commercial clients in the technology infrastructure and financial services industries. We look forward to seeing his accomplishments at INL.
