Former Senator and Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham Joins Board of ICx Technologie, WASHINGTON, DC — (MARKET WIRE)
ICx Technologies, a developer of advanced security technology, announced today that Spencer Abraham has been elected to its Board of Directors.
As U.S. Secretary of Energy from 2001 until 2004, Spencer Abraham revitalized the Department of Energy and oversaw the implementation of post-9/11 security measures by government, research and commercial entities in the energy sector. He saw to the safety of America's nuclear stockpiles, played a key international role and created new security plans that the Washington Post called “great gifts to the nation from Abraham.”
“Spence Abraham was the right man in the right place after 9/11,” said Hans Kobler, CEO of ICx Technologies. “The terrorists hijacked U.S. technology and turned it against us. Spence led the way in harnessing technology to prevent another attack.” The Department of Energy, Mr. Kobler noted, oversees the nation's nuclear weapons stockpile, nuclear weapons laboratories and many other institutions that have access to radiological materials. “Secretary Abraham was responsible for some of the most critical — and potentially dangerous — facilities on U.S. soil. As a director of ICx Technologies, he will now help guide our development of next-generation security technologies.”
