Lisa E. Gordon-Hagerty was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Thursday as the U.S. Department of Energy’s under secretary for nuclear security and administrator for the National Nuclear Security Administration.
“We are excited to welcome Lisa to the DOE team following her confirmation,” Perry said in the press release. “Her knowledge in the national security space, including her history with the department in running the emergency preparedness operation, will be an asset to the National Nuclear Security Administration. I look forward to working with her as she takes the helm in NNSA and thank the Senate for their attention to her nomination.”
Gordon-Hagerty replaces Frank Klotz, a retired Air Force general who had been in the job since 2014 and retired January 19.
Gordon-Hagerty’s nomination was announced in December. The Thursday press release from the NNSA said she has more than 30 years of national security experience, including in nuclear security. Before joining the Trump administration, she was president of Tier Tech International Inc., as well as president and CEO of LEG Inc.
Her previous government service includes stints at the National Security Council, DOE, and the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce. She began her career as a health physicist at DOE’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
Gordon-Hagerty is a graduate of the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in health physics.
