BETHESDA, MD—Charles Yulish, vice president corporate communications at global energy company USEC for the past decade is retiring.
Yulish joined what was the U.S. Enrichment Company in 1995, when it was still a federal corporation, and was responsible for external and internal communications during its privatization in 1998 and transition to an investor owned company. During this time, he has been the principal spokesperson for the Company.
He was also responsible for the company’s award-winning Megatons to Megawatts program, which involved buying nuclear warheads from the former Soviet Union and turning them into fuel for U.S. nuclear plants.
Yulish’s decade at USEC caps a 50-year career in nuclear energy, beginning with radioisotopes research and leading to positions with the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, the Atomic Industrial Forum (now the Nuclear Energy Institute) and senior positions with E. Bruce Harrison Co. and Holt Ross & Yulish, public relations firms dealing primarily with energy and environmental issues.
His role will be taken over by Elizabeth Stuckle, director of communications for the company.
