Lisa Gordon-Hagerty, former president of security consulting firm Tier Tech International, has taken her oath as the Department of Energy‘s undersecretary for nuclear security and administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration.
DOE said Thursday Gordon-Hagerty brings more than three decades of national security experience to her new position.
She began her career at the DOE-funded Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and later held leadership positions within the department, National Security Council and the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
Gordon-Hagerty also led national security consulting services provider LEG as president and CEO.
“I am especially proud of the fact that she is the first woman in history to lead the NNSA and look forward to working together to address the administration’s goal of modernizing our nuclear security enterprise,” said DOE Secretary Rick Perry.
