Two appointments have been announced at the US ITER Project Office (USIPO): Wayne Reiersen has been named Magnet Systems Team Leader and Janet Bivens is the new Senior Project Controls Analyst.

Wayne, an employee of Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), had been serving as Interim Manager for Magnet Systems following the retirement of John Miller. In that role, Wayne provided significant support during preparations for the recent Lehman Review. He joined the US ITER Project Chief Engineer's Group in 2007, after holding several engineering management positions at PPPL, including work with the National Compact Stellarator Experiment, KSTAR, and TPX projects. Wayne has more than 32 years of diversified experience in engineering analysis, systems engineering, and engineering management. He received a B.S. in mechanical engineering from Cornell University and a Master's degree in nuclear engineering from the University of Tennessee.

Janet, who succeeds Wayne Steffey (now USIPO Project Controls Manager), had served most recently as Finance Officer for US ITER. She joined the Oak Ridge National Laboratory staff in 2000 as a student worker and has taken on positions of increasing responsibility, including that of Finance Officer for the Spallation Neutron Source Accelerator Systems Division. Janet became a member of the US ITER team in 2006. She received a B.S. in accounting from the University of Tennessee and a Master's degree in project management from Western Carolina University. Janet is a Certified Project Management Professional.
