ANS President Eric P. Loewen remarked "ANS is grateful to Mr. Tilbrook for his service to the society, and this honor is evidence of the great respect that ANS members hold for him."
Tilbrook was recently named interim executive director of ANS in May and is helping the society find a full time executive director.
"When I became interim executive director, I was very excited to be again an integral part of the society I love so much," Tilbrook said. "I am deeply honored by this additional recognition by the society and I look forward to further service to it.”
Tilbrook brings more than 40 years of nuclear community experience; he had tenures at Westinghouse, where he was in the Advanced Energy Systems Division from 1968 until 1983 and at Argonne from 1984 before retiring in 1999.
He received his B.Sc. in mechanical engineering with honors in 1962 from Queen Mary College, University of London, and did economics and management studies, as well as advanced engineering studies at the University of Manchester. He has been an active member in ANS since 1968, having served on a number of committees and sections.
The American Nuclear Society is a professional organization of engineers and scientists devoted to the peaceful applications of nuclear science and technology. Its 11,500 members come from diverse technical backgrounds covering the full range of engineering disciplines.
