The man who managed $18.4 billion in U.S. funds to support reconstruction efforts in Iraq will discuss "Building Under Fire" on campus Wednesday, March 23.
Retired Rear Adm. David Nash, former director of the Program Management Office for the Coalition Provisional Authority for the Department of Defense, will speak at 4:30 p.m. in 16 Robertson Hall.
Nash, who has nearly four decades of building, design and program management experience with the U.S. Navy and the private sector, went to Iraq in 2003 to head the PMO. In June 2004, he was named director of both the Iraq Reconstruction Management Office and the Project and Contracting Office, the successor to the PMO. This past September, he joined Alabama-based BE&K, a top U.S. engineering and construction contractor, as president of its government group.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
