New Management Appointments at Plum Brook Announced

Randall B. Furnas, Director of Engineering and Technical Services at NASA's Glenn Research Center recently announced a realignment of the Plum Brook Management Office resulting in two key senior-level appointments.

Robert R. Smalley, a 38-year veteran of Glenn is now serving a six-month detail as Chief of Operations at Plum Brook Station. He will oversee the day-to-day operations, including the test facilities, NASA employees and the support service contractors.

Robert P. Kozar has been named Executive Liaison in Glenn's Engineering and Technical Services Directorate though his office will continue to be located at Plum Brook. In this new capacity Kozar will convey the broad range of capabilities available at Plum Brook as its representative on Agency-level boards and alliances. He will also serve as the primary liaison from Plum Brook to the Air Force, Department of Defense, other high-level relationships, industry, NASA centers and the local and regional communities.

Furnas stated, "These appointments will be an outstanding match as we realign Plum Brook into an organization that will be more effective at interacting with our Cleveland campus and will provide more opportunities for marketing our test capabilities and forming alliances outside of Glenn Research Center."
