Vienna, VA, October 2, 2023 – ARES Security is proud to announce that Rob White will become our new Senior Vice President of Nuclear Security Solutions. Rob White was previously the Director of Nuclear Security and Emergency Preparedness for Xcel Energy. In this role, Rob managed all aspects of Nuclear Security and Emergency Preparedness for the Xcel Energy Fleet and was personally responsible for significant innovations and cost savings in security, as well as working with industry groups to spearhead a systematic, risk-based approach to security management.
ARES has had a long history of partnering with the Nuclear Industry as a thought and innovation leader by introducing AVERT® Physical Security technology to the US and International markets. ARES, through this effort, has saved the U.S. Nuclear Industry an estimated $130M per year in security operating costs while maintaining or improving Nuclear Security Effectiveness. The journey in the Nuclear Industry starts with individuals who are willing to put their reputation on the line for something they believe. Rob White is that person for ARES Security and the AVERT® Technology. Without Rob’s experience, leadership, and vision in the Nuclear Industry, and willingness to champion innovation, ARES Security would never have gotten our start. It is both an honor and a blessing that we can welcome Rob to our team.
Rob’s primary role at ARES will be to head the nuclear business unit tasked with introducing our entire “Enterprise Security Platform” suite of solutions into the industry, with a strong emphasis on AVERT® C2 and AVERT® Mission Planning for Robotics. “I’m confident with Rob’s head for strategy, leadership, and understanding of both the existing fleet of reactors and the upcoming Small Modular Reactor fleet, that we will soon see additional value-added solutions for our customers”, said Ben Eazzetta CEO of ARES Security.
