Jeff Washburn

Jeff Washburn, P.E.

Jeff Washburn brings considerable practical, hands-on plant management experience in developing safety culture and improving performance in diverse and complex environments including R&D, pilot plant operation, nuclear facility operation, engineering, and even cattle ranching.  As plant manager he was part of a two-year effort that turned one nuclear facility from being the worst run plant in the Department of Energy complex to the best.  The plant achieved significant improvement in safety statistics (example: 72 skin contaminations to zero in the second year) while simultaneously exceeding production commitments.  His contribution to safe, successful laser enrichment pilot plant runs was recognized by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory laser program directorate.
