MORRIS, Ill. (Feb. 19, 2009) -Tim Hanley has been named site vice president at Dresden Generating Station, the company announced Monday. Hanley, a resident of Ottawa, will oversee all aspects of plant operations at Dresden.
He replaces Dave Wozniak, who is leaving Dresden to become site vice president at the LaSalle County Generating Station in Marseilles, Ill., which is also part of the Exelon Nuclear fleet.
Hanley has more than 20 years of experience in the nuclear power industry. Prior to becoming Dresden's site vice president, he served as the station's plant manager. Hanley joined the company in 1987 as a system engineer at Quad Cities Station in Cordova, Ill. Since then, he has held positions of increasing responsibility at the station. Before moving to Dresden in 2006 as the site's engineering director, he served as director of Midwest operations projects at Exelon Nuclear's corporate headquarters in Warrenville, Ill.
Hanley holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Nuclear Engineering from Purdue University and a Masters in Business Administration from St. Ambrose University. Hanley lives in Ottawa, Ill.
LaSalle Operations Director Shane Marik will take over the plant manager position at Dresden.
Marik also has more than two decades of experience in the nuclear power industry. Since joining the company at LaSalle Station in 1985, he has held positions in several departments at the station, including chemistry, quality assurance, work management and operations.
"Tim and Shane both possess a wealth of nuclear experience and excellent leadership skills," said Stephen Kuczynski, Exelon Nuclear senior vice president for Midwest operations. "I am confident that under their direction, Dresden will continue to provide safe, reliable electricity and to maintain the station's leadership role within the community."
