WASHINGTON, D.C. – EM today announced that Sue Cange has been named its Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary.

   “Sue is a trusted and effective leader with a deep understanding of EM’s cleanup mission and passion for advancing our mission,” EM Assistant Secretary Monica Regalbuto said. “With a strong track record of leading organizations to complete cleanup work safely and efficiently, she will be integral to our progress.”

   Cange has nearly three decades of DOE leadership experience, serving most recently as manager of EM’s Oak Ridge, Tenn. office. She was a founding member of Oak Ridge’s reindustrialization program, which transfers underutilized assets to the private sector to accelerate cleanup and promote economic development.

   Prior to her roles in Oak Ridge, Cange worked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, developing policy to govern work under Superfund, a federal program designed to fund cleanup of contaminated sites.

   Cange has integrated technical knowledge with communication skills in a highly successful career that involves a broad spectrum of stakeholders, including federal and state regulators, state and local government officials, the corporate community, concerned citizen groups and the media.

   Cange holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in environmental engineering from Vanderbilt University.
