From the desk of KyuJung Whang

It is with pleasure that I announce the appointment of Ben Kuo as the new senior director for facilities management. Ben currently serves as director of continuity, emergency and fire management for Environmental Health and Safety. He recently served Facilities Services as an interim director of Transportation Services. Ben will begin transitioning to his new role on June 2.

An engineer by training with a B.S. in chemical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, Ben is an accomplished leader with a strong private industry background developed through many years of experience with Toyota Motor Corporation. During his eight-month tenure with Transportation Services, Ben proved himself to be a caring, innovative, process-oriented and thoughtful leader. Well-respected by his staff, Ben has continually demonstrated his ability to collaborate and partner with those he is working with. I believe Ben is well-poised to take Facilities Management to an even greater level of effectiveness as we continue to improve our new zone management structure.

Please join me in congratulating and welcoming Ben back to Facilities Services.

– KyuJung Whang, vice president for facilities services
