Regional Director Lorri Lee has selected Rob Skordas as the new deputy regional director for Power and Infrastructure in Reclamation's Pacific Northwest Region. Skordas began his new position Oct. 17. He replaces Terry Kent, who will retire at the end of this year.

"Rob's years of managing complex power projects, combined with his on-the-ground experience at Grand Coulee Dam, will be a great asset to the region," Lee said. "His expertise will go a long way to support Reclamation's mission of delivering water and power in an economically- and environmentally-sound manner."

Skordas was previously the Lower Colorado Dams Area manager, where he directed business and maintenance activities at Hoover Dam, Davis Dam, and Parker Dam.

He began his federal career in 1999 as an apprentice powerplant operator at Grand Coulee Dam. Since completing his apprenticeship, Skordas has assumed increasingly-challenging leadership and management positions in Reclamation's Mid-Pacific and Lower Colorado regions, the bureau said in a press release.

A native of Coulee Dam, Skordas holds a doctor of chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic-West in San Jose, California. He practiced chiropractic care for 15 years before entering government service.
