Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC (SRNS), formed by major corporate partners Fluor Daniel; Northrop Grumman; and Honeywell, became the Management & Operating Contractor at the Savannah River Site on August 1, 2008.
Chuck Munns is president and chief executive officer for SRNS. His responsibilities include providing vision, leadership, mission growth, technological advancement, and a performance-based culture of safety and operational excellence at the site.
Before joining SRNS, Munns served for 34 years in the U.S. Navy's most high-profile and challenging positions, attaining the rank of vice admiral. His most recent Navy position was commander of the U.S. Submarine Force, which included all U.S. submarines worldwide, had a $12 billion annual budget, and employed more than 21,000 people.
As a submarine officer, Munns spent his career preserving the nation's security, operating its nuclear submarine reactors, and safeguarding its nuclear weapons. He has also led large Department of Defense acquisition programs, serving as program manager for the $7 billion Navy Marine Corps Intranet project. This brought secure, cost-effective, modern computing to the Department of the Navy. It is the largest corporate intranet in the world and is used by every naval employee worldwide.
Munns also served as commander of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) submarines, working with all NATO member countries to provide safe and effective submarine procedures and policies. He also supported the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations in the Strategic Concepts Branch, Strategy and Policy Division and as head of the Nuclear Affairs and International Negotiations Branch.
