“As the Administrator of NNSA and numerous other agencies, she has championed and managed many national nuclear security programs both in the U.S. and globally. Her proven leadership, experience in government and business sectors, and broad knowledge of the new security and challenges faced by all governments today will enhance the high-quality board we already have in place,” said John K. Stevens, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Visible. “She will also serve as chair of the Defense Advisory Board (DAB). This addition ensures we will continue to be driven by a diverse team with a wide range of experiences and opinions. We are truly honored that someone of Ms. Gordon-Hagerty’s stature and experience has agreed to join the Visible board,” said Stevens.
Ms. Gordon-Hagerty holds both a bachelor of science and a master of public health degree in health physics from the University of Michigan. She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Health Physics Society. She also served on the board of experts for the Federation of American Scientists.
“Visible’s RuBee wireless technology opens many new AI, automation, and modernization doors, with opportunities for enhanced security of mission-critical assets throughout the world,” said Gordon-Hagerty. “Current and pending RuBee installations around the globe have the potential to automate and enhance nuclear security and mitigate the loss or damage of high-value weapons and other critical military assets. I am excited to be part of the Visible Assets board of directors and the chair of the Visible Defense Advisory Board, and I look forward to working with the company to help support and optimize RuBee-based security and visibility deployments globally.”
