The Lake Tahoe Concours Welcomes New Board Member

We are honored to introduce our newest board member, Edward F. “Ward” Sproat III. Ward and his wife Heidi have been members of the Tahoe Yacht Club since 2013 and are the owners of a 1960 Chris Craft Capri named TahoeHeidi. They have entered her in the Concours d’Elegance the past 2 years and received a third place award in 2016. Ward is also the owner of a 2000 Stampfli single racing shell which is one of the last wooden racing shells made by the Swiss firm. Ward is a member and former officer of the Undine Barge Club of Philadelphia, one of the oldest rowing clubs in the country founded in 1869.

Ward retired this year as a Principal Vice President from the Bechtel Corporation. During his eight years with Bechtel, he was the Project Director for nuclear plant projects in Maryland, Tennessee and Washington State.

Prior to joining Bechtel, Ward held the position of Director of the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (RW-1) in the U.S. Department of Energy until January 2009. He was nominated for that position by President George W. Bush in September of 2005 and was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in May 2006. During his tenure, he successfully led the efforts to develop and submit to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission the license application for the Nation’s high-level radioactive waste repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.

Ward previously held the position of Vice President of International Projects for Exelon Generation. In this position he was responsible for developing and managing the Exelon interests in various international generation ventures. He was a director on the board of PBMR (Pebble Bed Modular Reactor) Pty. LTD in the Republic of South Africa. While in this position, Exelon was requested by the PBMR board to allow Mr. Sproat to assume the duties of Chief Operating Officer and spent all of 2002 as COO of the company in South Africa.

Ward also held various management positions with Exelon’s predecessor PECO Energy over a 30 year career.

Ward holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master of Science degree in Dynamics of Organizations, both from the University of Pennsylvania. He completed the Executive Development Program at Cornell University. He was a licensed Professional Electrical Engineer.
