The Four "Ds" of New Leadership

ESD's new Division Director, Don DePaolo quietly stepped into the ESD office on October 1 (2007). In his first Town Hall meeting with the ESD staff on November 1, Don commented that so far it has "been fun". Drs. Steven Chu and Graham Fleming commended Ernie Majer for his great leadership as the Acting ES Division Director during the past year and "officially" handed the reigns over to Don. Read more about our new Division Director here.

And...Thanks Ernie!
