Kelly Named New Manager of DOE’s Oak Ridge Office

Larry Kelly has been a member of the Oak Ridge community since 1990 and has more than 30 years of federal service.

DOE-SealOn July 19, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science named Larry Kelly the new manager of the Oak Ridge Office (ORO). Kelly most recently served as ORO’s acting manager and previously served as the acting deputy manager and the assistant manager for Environment, Safety & Health (ES&H).

“After completing a nationwide search of qualified candidates, Larry separated himself as the perfect choice for this position,” said Joe McBrearty, deputy director of field operations for DOE’s Office of Science. “With the changes happening in Oak Ridge, we wanted to institute and establish a very strong leadership team that can work the new organization as it is envisioned and interact well with the other parts of the organization locally and nationally.”

As the manager of one of DOE’s most diverse field locations, Kelly’s executive responsibilities include management of the Oak Ridge Integrated Support Center, which provides critical mission support services in the personnel, finance, budget, procurement, legal, security and emergency management, and employee health and safety arenas on a national and local level. Kelly will also be responsible for management of the 32,000 acre Oak Ridge Reservation, which will include addressing cross-cutting issues and activities among major organizations such as the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the East Tennessee Technology Park, and the National Nuclear Security Administration Production Office.

Kelly has been a member of the Oak Ridge community since 1990 and has more than thirty years of federal service, including 21 years with the ORO where he has overseen programs in the areas of environment, safety, health, and quality assurance through the Office of Science’s Integrated Support Center.
