ETEC Meeting: Sue Cange, Oak Ridge EM, DOE
August 7, 2015 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am
Sue Cange is the manager for the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management and is responsible for safely executing the environmental cleanup of the Oak Ridge Reservation. This entails successfully managing the cleanup of the East Tennessee Technology Park, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the Y-12 National Security Complex.
Over the past 27 years, Sue has held various leadership positions within the Department of Energy in the offices of Environmental Management, Nuclear Energy and Assets Utilization. In addition, Sue was one of the founding members of the Reindustrialization Program in Oak Ridge which transfers underutilized assets to the private sector to accelerate cleanup and promote economic development.
Prior to coming to Oak Ridge, Sue worked for the Environmental Protection Agency. In this capacity, she helped to develop much of the policy and guidance that is used today to govern environmental cleanup under the Superfund Program.
Throughout Sue’s career, she has been able to integrate the necessary technical knowledge with personal communication skills to be highly successful in an environment that includes a broad spectrum of stakeholders such as federal and state regulators, state and local government officials, the corporate community, concerned citizen groups, and the media.
Sue holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in environmental engineering from Vanderbilt University.
