“Taking on the daily operations of the business is Caroline Reda, who has spent many years in our nuclear organization. Her leadership experience across the company makes her a superb candidate to continue our momentum in the nuclear space,” said Steve Bolze, president & CEO, GE Power & Water.

Bolze also said: “Jack is recognized as a nuclear industry leader, and I am pleased that his expertise and knowledge will continue to be focused on strategic initiatives which are vital to our long-term success.”

For the last five years, Reda served as president & CEO of GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies, a global business unit with 4,300 employees that designs and manufacturers sensing and non-destructive testing equipment for numerous industries, including the nuclear energy sector.

Reda earned a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a Master’s degree in industrial engineering from North Carolina State University. She and her family will relocate to Wilmington, NC.

In an explanation for the change, GE said: "With the world’s increasing concerns about climate change and the rising demand for energy, nuclear energy is enjoying a global resurgence as one of the few available, virtually non-carbon emitting sources of electricity. In order to continue the momentum and build off its success in the nuclear industry under Jack Fuller’s excellent leadership, GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) has announced an organizational change that will provide additional leadership during this critical time."
