Jeff Wadsworth, deputy director for Science & Technology and formerly AD of Chemistry & Materials Science, is resigning from the Laboratory, effective in August, to join Battelle Corp. as a senior executive.

In announcing his resignation, Wadsworth said he discussed his departure date with Director Designate Michael Anastasio to "allow for the transition of my current responsibilities in the most effective manner possible."

After 10 years at the Lab, Wadsworth said he has decided "to pursue a new and exciting opportunity" offered by Battelle.

"I have a high regard for the pe ople at Battelle. They have a broad range of interests in the Department of Energy including the national labs, the Department of Defense, and leading-edge capabilities in commercialization of technology. These areas map very well to my interests," Wadsworth noted.

"My 10 years at Livermore have been fantastic and it has been a privilege to work with the employees here. I am looking forward to new challenges at Battelle," he added.

At Battelle, Wadsworth will join the technology development and commercialization organization as a senior executive, focusing on helping build its broad technology and business base in government and commercial markets.
