Paul Hommert ’72 was appointed president of Sandia Corp. and director of Sandia National Laboratories, in July. Hommert, who began his career with Sandia in 1976, was serving as Sandia’s executive vice president and deputy laboratories director for the nuclear weapons program at the time of his appointment.

“Paul brings to his new assignment an exceptional record of leadership and achievement, backed by nearly 34 years of diverse nuclear weapons and national security experience,” said Marillyn Hewson, chairman of Sandia Corp.’s board of directors.

Hommert’s career spans multiple institutions. He worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory from 2003 to 2006, where he led the Applied Physics Division (known within the nuclear weapons community as “X” division). He worked for three years as the director of research and applied science at the United Kingdom’s Atomic Weapons Establishment, which provides and maintains that nation’s nuclear deterrent.

Hommert earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Rensselaer and a master’s degree and doctorate in mechanical engineering from Purdue University.

Sandia National Laboratories is a multi-program laboratory operated by Sandia Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corp., for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration.
