FRIB Deputy Project Manager selected

We are pleased to announce the selection of Donna M. Donovan, JD, to be the FRIB Deputy Project Manager.  Ms. Donovan graduated magna cum laude in 1996 from Thomas M. Cooley Law School.  In addition to her private practice, she has executive experience with the Michigan Nonprofit Association and a succession of positions of greater line and project management responsibility within the Michigan Department of Treasury culminating in her current position of Chief Deputy Treasurer. Ms. Donovan has successful executive level experience dealing with complex programmatic and project issues in a large organizational setting with public accountability.  She will add extensive management expertise to the FRIB leadership team as the project moves from the design to the construction phase. On June 6, 2011, Ms. Donovan will succeed Carl Strawbridge, who has filled this role for the past 15 months as the project has matured and successfully achieved the major milestones needed as FRIB progresses towards setting a performance baseline in the summer of 2012. Mr. Strawbridge will assist in the transition and continue as an advisor to the FRIB Project.
