Wunderlich Joins DOE Stanford Site Office

By Linda DuShane White

The New Year brought major changes in the DOE Stanford Site Office (SSO) at SLAC. We bid farewell to Site Manager John Muhlestein, who will work as a Special Advisor to Milton Johnson, Chief Operating Officer in the Office of Science (SC) in Washington, D.C. Muhlestein began his new assignment in early January.

Wunderlich Arrives from Argonne

Bob Wunderlich was chosen to assume the Acting Manager position at SLAC by Ray Orbach, Director of the Office of Science. This assignment will continue through February. Wunderlich brings with him his experience as OneSC Project Deputy and Site Office OneSc Team Leader. His 34 years of service with the Federal Government include his current posting as the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) Site Manager.

Wunderlich’s program for the weeks to come is ambitious. "I plan to complete the Corrective Action Plan from the Type A Electrical Accident, including four of the 12 findings that were against the Site Office." He will work with SLAC management to begin getting the accelerators back on-line. He also plans to modify SSO business processes and procedures to make them more efficient and effective.

If you see Wunderlich walking from his temporary home at the SLAC Guest House to his office in the A&E Building, be sure to say hello. He finds the Guest House comfortable and hospitable, and is especially fond of his new commute!
