Certrec, a leading licensing and regulatory compliance service provider that supports NRC and NERC compliance, announced today that Mr. Fred Madden has joined Certrec’s team as a Senior Project Manager.
Mr. Madden recently retired as a Director of External Affairs from Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant and has over 40 years of experience in the areas of Regulatory Affairs, Engineering, Emergency Preparedness, Security, Quality Assurance and Project Management.
“I am proud to be part of the Certrec team and look forward to assisting clients with efficient solutions to regulatory challenges that meet their business needs and maintain regulatory confidence" stated Madden.
“New plant efforts, license extensions, power uprates, industry events, and environmental considerations are constantly driving change in the licensing process,” says Ted Enos, Certrec President. “A large percentage of experienced nuclear professionals are reaching retirement age. As such, Certrec’s team becomes an essential support service to help replace lost expertise and to support ever-shrinking licensing and compliance staffs.”
Fred Madden brings more than 40 years of regulatory affairs, engineering, emergency preparedness, security, quality assurance and project management experience to Certrec. A 35-year veteran of Comanche Peak, Fred was involved in the original construction and startup of the plant and supported operations in a variety of responsibilities. Additionally, he spent two years in Washington, DC as a loaned employee to the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI).
“We are excited that such a noted nuclear expert as Fred Madden has chosen to join the Certrec Team. His 40 plus years of broad regulatory experience in such areas as diverse as Regulatory Affairs, Engineering, Emergency Preparedness, and Security will greatly enhance Certrec’s pool of expertise and its ability to further support our customer’s needs,” Enos notes.
