EM leaders honored

Two deputy assistant secretaries within the U.S. Department of Energy’s Environmental Management program have been recognized for their results-focused leadership. Gerald G. Boyd, who heads the Office of Science and Technology, and David G. Huizenga, Boyd’s counterpart at the Office of Integration and Disposition, have been honored with Presidential Rank Awards for Meritorious Service. Open to career senior executives of the federal government, the award is bestowed by the President of the United States to recognize outstanding leaders who demonstrate integrity, industry, and commitment to public service. These are leaders who have successfully balanced the needs and perspectives of customers, stakeholders, and employees and who've fostered partnerships and community solutions to achieve results.

Award winners are nominated by their agency heads, evaluated by boards of private citizens, and approved by the President. The evaluation criteria focus on the executives’ leadership in producing results.

Boyd and Huizenga are among a select group that received meritorious awards. Given to recognize long-term accomplishments, the award goes to only 5% of career senior executives. The award includes a bonus of 20% of the executive’s base pay, a silver pin, and a framed certificate signed by the President.
