Nuclear and hazardous waste management firm Kurion of Irvine announced earlier this month the naming of retired executive Ralph DiSibio as its chairman of the board to help commercialize the company.
Disibio most recently served as division president of the government, energy and environment unit for Washington Energy and Environment, which designs and manages facilities for the Department of Energy. He also worked as director of human resources for the state of Nevada, where he helped reshape low-level nuclear waste policies and served on a presidential committee that led to the Low Level Waste Policy Act of 1981.
“[Disibio] is well-known and respected in nuclear and environmental waste management circles,” said Kurion founder and CEO John Raymont. “He brings a wealth of strategic and operating experience regarding winning major contracts, managing nuclear waste sites and working directly with government organizations, including the Department of Energy’s Environmental Management program.”
Former chairman and Kurion co-founder Josh Wolfe, who is also managing director of Lux Capital, will continue to serve as director of the company.
