The search for a new director of the Georgia Tech Research Institute has recently concluded and Dr. Edward Reedy has been named vice president and director of GTRI.
Prior to this appointment, Reedy served as GTRI's interim vice president and director following the resignation of Admiral Richard Truly in March.
Reedy has been with Georgia Tech since 1970, when he took the position of research engineer in GTRI's Radar and Instrumentation Lab. He served as director of this group for 13 years.
In 1990, Reedy was named associate director of GTRI. Three years later, he became director of research operations, a position that brought responsibility for all nine GTRI research labs.
In addition to his duties at GTRI Reedy has served as adjunct professor in the school of Electrical and Computer Engineering and also serves on the national board of directors of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
GTRI generates about $100 million in research contracts, which is just more than half of the sponsored research conducted at Tech.
