Mr. John M. (Jack) Tuohy, Jr. was named to his current position as Executive Director of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) in October 2008. He has directed the activities of technical professionals providing engineering, design, construction, and strategic planning services for the Department of Energy, commercial nuclear industry, and national laboratories.
Prior to joining the ANS, he directed Hitachi America's U.S. nuclear activities, applying their extensive experience in Japan to the emerging U.S. nuclear market. He spent more than a decade teaching Reactor Engineering at Manhattan College and Stevens Institute of Technology.
One of Mr. Tuohy's goals is to establish a comprehensive energy policy that includes nuclear energy, which has the smallest carbon footprint of all electric generation methods.
