Valley Forge Composite Technologies
: 09 April, 2008  (Company News)
Valley Forge Composite Technologies, has announced the appointment of Dr. Victor E. Alessi to its Board of Directors.

'With the addition of Dr. Alessi to Valley Forge's Board of Directors we are gaining the ability to deal more efficiently with governmental agencies on a worldwide basis, as well as his keen business skills. It is a natural fit with Dr. Alessi's experience with the Department of Energy (DOE) and our agreement with the DOE,' said Louis J. Brothers, Chief Executive Officer and President of Valley Forge Composite Technologies, Inc.

From 1999 until 2007, Dr. Victor E. Alessi was Chief Executive Officer of the United States Industry Coalition (USIC), an organization dedicated to facilitating the commercialization of technologies of the New Independent States (NIS) of the former Soviet Union through cooperation with its members. Previously, he was President of DynMeridian, a subsidiary of DynCorp, specializing in arms control, nonproliferation and international security affairs. Before joining DynMeridian in early 1996, Dr. Alessi was the Executive Assistant to the Director, U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA). At ACDA he oversaw day-to-day operations, preparation of the Agency's budget, and its contribution to the National Performance Review. He resolved inter-bureau disputes, and advised the Director on all arms control and nonproliferation issues.

Dr. Alessi served as Director of the Office of Arms Control and Nonproliferation in the Department of Energy (DOE) prior to his work at ACDA. His duties included overseeing all DOE arms control and nonproliferation activities and, until 1993, he was responsible for developing and monitoring a $200M research and development (R&D) program that supported his office's responsibilities. This R&D program involved hundreds of scientists and engineers at DOE national laboratories, and covered the entire range of R&D from advanced concepts research extending the frontiers of science and technology to the development of systems based on existing technologies.

Before joining DOE in 1987, he was the Chief of the Strategic Affairs Division of ACDA. In that capacity, he was responsible for START, Anti- Satellite Arms Control, Defense and Space negotiations, and the Standing Consultative Commission (SCC). Also, he served on the SALT II, START, and INF delegations.

Dr. Alessi is a 1963 graduate of Fordham University, where he also earned a licentiate in Philosophy (Ph.L.) in 1964. He studied nuclear physics at Georgetown University, receiving his M.S. in 1968 and Ph.D. in 1969.
