As Vice President and General Manager, Linda Kobel leads LATA-Sharp Remediation Services, LLC (LSRS), providing a unique blend of operations management, financial management and business development to the government (both DOE and DOD) and commercial industries. LSRS is the field execution arm of Los Alamos Technical Associates, one of the most successful small businesses in the DOE/NNSA environmental remediation services field, having performed over one billion dollars in environmental projects over the last 5 years alone.
With a strong knowledge of operations and financial management functions at the Department of Energy as well as both nuclear and fossil plant sites, she has an exceptional understanding of planning, integration and risk management required to maximize project success. In addition to leading LSRS, Ms. Kobel provides leadership, mentoring and oversight of LATA’s DOE portfolio, which currently represents over $450M in contract value and has managed the full spectrum of business services for two large DOE sites (Portsmouth and Paducah).
Prior to joining LATA, Linda was the President of Enercon Federal Services where she integrated companywide government operations and sales including planning, budgeting, forecasting and revenue management with a focus on compliance and project integration. As a Senior Vice President for EnergySolutions, she was responsible for providing strategic business solutions for DOE contracts including serving in concurrent roles as Business Manager for both the Portsmouth Environmental Remediation and Uranium Disposition Services contracts. She achieved outstanding personal and team results early in her career during her tenure with the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations.
From 1994 to 2008, Ms. Kobel was the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Co-Founder of Link Resources, Inc., a global operations and management company that provides senior consulting services and facility operations to fossil and nuclear utilities, health care, insurance, manufacturing, technology, government and non-profit sectors, as well as DOE operations at sites such as Hanford, Oak Ridge National Labs, and Idaho. At Link Resources, Ms. Kobel provided due diligence and transition services to the power plant industry where her entrepreneurial and business instincts; along with clarity of strategy and vision, contributed to multiple companies’ continued growth and success.
Her blend of “big business and small business” experience, coupled with her passion for linking people, processes, and operations and how strategic business solutions can improve company efficiencies qualifies her as a unique candidate for contributing to EFCOG’s mission of promoting excellence in DOE Operations.
Linda holds a BBA in Management from Kennesaw State University.
