Often called a cowboy, maverick, visionary, innovator, and superb leader, Dennis Wilkinson had remarkable careers in the Navy nuclear propulsion program and the commercial nuclear power industry. His involvement with the Navy gave nuclear power "celebrity status" at a time when the United States and the world were grappling with somber and frightening Cold War issues. After his Navy career, Wilkinson spent four years as the first CEO of the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations. He put in place an organization that led to cohesive industry partnerships and worldwide improvements in nuclear plant safety and reliability.
