NRC names Marc Dapas to head nuclear material office

Marc L. Dapas, a 27-year veteran of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, has begun serving as the new director of the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards at NRC headquarters in Rockville, Md. He succeeds Catherine Haney, who left in January to become regional administrator in the agency’s Region II office in Atlanta.

With Dapas’ arrival, Scott Moore, who has been acting director since Haney’s departure, will resume his position as deputy director for the office.

Dapas began his career in 1989 as an operations specialist at agency headquarters and three years later began a series of increasingly responsible positions in the NRC’s Region III office outside of Chicago.
