With the retirement of Doug McCuistion, Director of the Mars Exploration Program (MEP) at the end of December, I would like to announce the following:

Acting MEP Director: James Green
Lead MEP Program Executive: Lisa May
Lead MEP Program Scientist: Michael Meyer

Doug has worked tirelessly for the Federal Government for over 30 years and as the Director of MEP for 8 1/2 years. His dedication to the program is legendary. As a good friend, I will miss our daily interactions and his very steady hand on the Mars program. I am sure I speak for everyone in wishing him the very best in his future endeavors.
