The Juneau Economic Development Council added two new technology managers, Sue Chasen and Steve Eason, to its SpringBoard program.
SpringBoard, a partnership between JEDC and the U.S. Department of Defense, is a statewide program to help transfer and commercialize DOD technology, including its research, inventions, patents and laboratory facilities. The partnership also promotes science and math education initiatives in grades kindergarten through 12th in Alaska schools.
Chasen moved to Juneau in 2006, after 27 years with the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Most recently, she worked for the environmental consulting firm POWTEC in Juneau. As a co-author, she has published more than a dozen technical papers on geology and geothermal subjects.
Eason moved to SpringBoard from the state of Alaska. From 1995 to 2004, he worked for the Alaska Department of Revenue and the Alaska Permanent Fund, serving as an investment officer for equities and fixed income assets. Prior to that, he held positions with the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium and Scientific Atlanta.
