The Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center has a new technical director. Brett Seidle, who previously served as deputy technical director, succeeds Adam Razavian, who resigned in February to take a job in the private sector.
Seidle joined the center in 2000 and has served in a number of positions, including deputy director of the applied science department and department director for corporate operations. He served as acting technical director from mid-January through March.
"I’m excited about this opportunity," said Seidle. "Our employees do an amazing job in supporting our men and women in uniform and I’m looking forward to playing a role in increasing our technical leadership, building upon our strong business processes and ensuring that our workforce has the necessary skills to excel. I’m also looking forward to more interaction and collaboration with our community and regional partners."
Seidle received his doctorate degree in public policy from Indiana University. The Crane NSWC says in his new role, Seidle will lead a work force comprised of engineers, scientists, technicians and business experts.
