NHK television network and a number of other domestic and international
television and print media outlets.
During a career spanning over three decades at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Sherrell rose from the position of individual contributor to become the Director of Nuclear Technology Programs and Director of Research Reactor Development Programs. Under his leadership, ORNL's nuclear energy R&D
program portfolio grew to an annual budget of ~ $120 million,
supporting fourteen different offices within the Department of Energy (DOE), the Nuclear Regulatory
Commission (NRC), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration
(NASA), and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) – as well as numerous commercial companies.
passion for technical excellence and intellectual integrity is
complemented by in-depth "corporate knowledge" of the DOE, NRC, NASA, and NNSA cultures. He has an uncommon talent for interweaving intuition, technical discipline, advanced technology, and "common sense" to change
reality, expand possibilities, and enable his clients to achieve their missions. He has exceptionally strong
visioneering and technical communications skills (written, verbal, and
