Director, Office of Enterprise Assessments
Nathan H. Martin is the Director of the Department of Energy’s Office of Enterprise Assessments. He joined the Office following 30 years of distinguished service to our Nation in the United States Navy.
Before assuming his current role, Mr. Martin served as a senior advisor to Deputy Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette. In this position, Mr. Martin provided subject matter expertise, advice, and recommendations to senior leadership on complex, highly technical matters related to nuclear weapons, nuclear propulsion, national defense, national security, and emergency preparedness and response. Mr. Martin was instrumental in the rollout of the transformative Nuclear Posture Review and in building, expanding, and leveraging strategic partnerships throughout DOE, with counterparts in the Navy, other federal agencies, the intelligence community, and international organizations to achieve administration and agency objectives.
During his more than 30-year naval career, Mr. Martin commanded USS Georgia, USS Florida, and USS San Francisco, making four extended overseas deployments in command. He also served as Deputy Commander for Submarine Squadron 11 in San Diego, California, and as Executive Officer onboard USS Nebraska. Other key assignments included working in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations and serving as Chief of Staff for the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa in Djibouti, Africa. His awards include the Defense Superior Service Medal, the Legion of Merit, Meritorious Service Medal, and various other personal awards; but the ones he is proudest of are the unit citations recognizing the exceptional performance of his teams during deployment and the ships’ entire operating cycle.
Mr. Martin holds a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Rochester’s Simon Business School and a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from North Dakota State University.
